Line 15 has a mixed frame, with created common and half to matched. Comparisons are mainly of simple pairs, but occasionally more complex patterns like double-pairs, and some special cases, like the triple in the last line.

11 is not strong, and that there are quite strong affinities between the sixth and seventh couplets, which tend to obscure their different structural roles. Perhaps a sharply distinctive opening at this point in the paragraph would be too much of a break, so openings are muted as the paragraph develops. The central passage of the third segment continues until l. 12 It is marked off by the colon at the end of l. 16 and the exclamation mark at the end of l. 17. Notice that the length of the central passages rises as we go through the paragraph.

The main way in which the couplet form is used is by successive couplets saying almost the same thing as each other. Instead of the meaning developing, changing and deepening as the poem progresses, the couplets pile up, all about equivalent to each other.

After several of these, there is a termination that expresses the central statement, now made powerful by the panorama of contributory statements.
