Quandary Resolution 1265
holm, reveille, lily-livered, suspire
'Crack of dawn!' quoth the eagle, ' - it's always the same ungodly hour: first a claxon reveille from Triton twisting tritones from his conch; then what must I do but get up pronto, rax my wings, swoop off from my cosy sea-girt holm, and then for ever and a day rend the vitals of that lily-liverered punk Prometheus, who I tell you is a real pain in the gut, never any small talk, just keeps suspiring the most awful halitosis-ridden groans and feebly jangling his fetters at me - what a wimp!'
