Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 6329
licit, hillman, hubris, larruping

Some say the Earl of Oxford wrote,

The plays of Shakespeare, but I wot,

The answer's different, I'm assumin'

The author of them was, a Woman;

My reason's easy, so's my tack:

Ophelia and Lady Mac,

Are not the work of Man in tone,

Not penned in his testosterone,

Their words do not come from a Mister,

For surely they're writ by a Sister;

So who could write such shades of grey?

My money's on Ann Hathaway;

The sonnets, surely, give a clue,

From accents, colour, shade and hue -

Licit hillmen, hubris larruping,

Oft-times gather wher'ere the larks sing,

And speak of things best left unsaid

Before they take themselves to bed;

The one gift attached with a comma to the rest,

Is his, Will's, stipulation, that it shall be 'Second Best'!
