Sonnet 368

Proud legacy born out of pure white snow
Emerging there a changeling from the ice,
Of ancient gods which to a world bestowed
A charter to subdue the world by right:
‘Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth,
And subdue it: and have dominion over
The sea, …  and everything that moveth;’
So did this pallid proxy rise to foster
The edict of those Holy words decreed—
All sapient might his brain and hand could muster,
Did dominate the lands, the skies and seas.
His brethren every progress did adopt,
Besmirching yet all wonders that he wrought.
