mollusque commented on the word unabortive
Could we but look upon this curse aright,
Mercy would hinder sleep until the blight
Were wholly banished soon. O men of worth,
Why art thou mute ? Why art thou mute, O earth ?
The unabortive beast, the stones might rise,
Rebuking human inconsistencies.
--J. R. Ramsay, 1869, Win-on-ah: or The Forest Light, and Other Poems, p. 92
