I'm sorry. The original says " Gratiae nuda'. This is not 'unapparelled Graces three.' Can we get past English sterility? I like Houseman, but- -really!

When thou descendest once the shades among, The stern assize and equal judgment o'er, Not thy long lineage nor thy golden tongue, No, nor thy righteousness, shall friend thee more. A very fine poem. to ny
