Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 650
surcease, beneficiary, colubrine, bibelot
I shall give you all this treasure - only gimcrack and bibelot to me now! - Mightiest of Wizards, and beg only in return that I may be a beneficiary of your magic and thereby gain surcease of my constant fear, the fear of the dread Worm Ouroboros, whose colubrine coils haunt my nightmares and whose fangs are lodged in my heart, draining my courage!
