"Within each willing heart [the Royal Ebor] rais'd his throne."
Metaphor in Context
In soul a hero, yet with bosom fram'd
  Of softest Mold, the Royal Ebor shone,
For every kingly grace and virtue fam'd,
  Within each willing heart he rais'd his throne;
Nor wonder Oza's feeling pulse shou'd beat
For one, whom heaven's kind care had render'd all compleat.
