This guest of summer,
The temple-haunting martlet, does approve,
By his loved mansionry, that the heavenís breath
Smells wooingly here. No jutty, frieze,
Buttress, nor coign of vantage, but this bird
Hath made his pendant bed and procreant cradle.
Where they most breed and haunt, I have observed,
The air is delicate.


Macbeth, Act 1 Scene 6

JenB, Coin / coign of vantage is a wonderful revelation, quite new to me. I am deeply impressed. How did you resolve that?

I just saw it straight away and googled the phrase, which confirmed my suspicions  :)

Thanks again JenB and thanks to horselydown86. That is now the fourth Macbeth quotation in the diary. Even when JenB shared it I failed to recognise it.  This forum is fun.

You can say that again!  :)
One of the most enjoyable forms of education I've ever encountered!  :D
