Assertion of the Strength of Virtue
A, as its first of letters, every speech maintains;
The “Primal Deity” is first through all the world’s domains.
As the letter A is the first of all letters, so the eternal God is first in the world.

The pleasure’s crowned when breast is clasped to breast.
Dislike adds delight to love; and a hearty embrace (thereafter) will add delight to dislike.
