In response to Doone's comment... actually it's not smiled it is
'sneered'... maybe in another version, someone changed it to smiled

Just wanted to point out that the poem as given here is incorrect: it's
"the mighty merchant SMILED", not sneered. Important because that really
changes the tone of the poem.

Doone from United States
