His beard was as white as snow,
All flaxen was his poll.
SHAKS.: _Hamlet,_ Act iv., Sc. 5.
His tawny beard was th' equal grace
Both of his wisdom and his face;
In cut and die so like a tile,
A sudden view it would beguile;
The upper part thereof was whey;
The nether, orange mix'd with grey.
BUTLER: _Hudibras,_ Pt. i., Canto i., Line 241.
