Mould
 
No autumn, nor no age, ever approach
This heavenly piece, which, Nature having wrought,
She lost her needle.
        Massinger and Field.—Fatal Dowry, Act II. Scene 2.

I think Nature hath lost the mould
  Where she her shape did take;
Or else I doubt if Nature could
  So fair a creature make.
        Anonymous.—Gilfillan’s Specimens of the less known British Poets, Vol. I. Page 132.
  2
There camps his son: of all his following
Is none so beauteous: Nature broke the mould
In which she cast him.
        Ariosto.—The Orlando Furioso, Canto X. Stanza 84. (Rose’s Translation.)
  3
Nature, despairing e’er to make the like,
Brake suddenly the mould in which ’twas fashion’d.
        Massinger.—The Parliament of Love, Act V. Scene last.
  4
Sighing that Nature formed but one such man,
And broke the die—in moulding Sheridan.
        Byron.—Monody on the Death of R. B. Sheridan.
