      Of pub|lic hon|or and / proud ti|tles boast,

      Whilst I | whom for|tune of / such tri|umph bars
       .   T    T   T         ,       ,       ,
      Unlooked-for joy | in that | I hon|or most.
        T     Tx      T                    ,     ,      ,
      Great princes' fa|vorites their // fair leaves spread
           ,        ,     ,               ,    ,
