...There's goodly trade in unicorns, in castles and their treasure,
Dragons are much demanded, endless caverns, eagly crags,
There's trade in rings of elven work, in songs of striding measure,
Star-smiting curses, aye, and quests, and splendid thumping brags.
Come buy! Come choose your heart's desire of these,
Fable and dream, wondrous commodities.
Already yours, these unicorns, as aught you owned yestre'en,
This castle, real as memory, that none but you have seen.
