It is a vast commentary on the second septenary of the Trumps Major.
In this specimen we have the septenary without rime, a rare form.
It is septenary in constitution, as may be seen in its vibrations expressed in color and sound.
The septenary line, however, in its strict form admits only of monosyllabic caesura and disyllabic ending.
Chapman, in his translation of Homer, often uses it in Septenary verses as well as in five-foot iambic verses.
In Modern English the Septenary has been extensively used, both in long and in short rhyming lines.
More often this Septenary metre occurs in short lines (and therefore with fixed masculine caesura).
In either arrangement the relationship of the metre to the Septenary verse comes clearly out.
In Modern English stanzas of this kind, consisting of Septenary verses, are of rare occurrence.
The four-stressed long lines sometimes alternate with Alexandrine and Septenary verses.
