Page 288 - He added not, and from her turn'd ; but Eve, Not so repuls'd, with tears that ceas'd not flowing, And tresses all disorder'd, at his feet Fell humble ; and, embracing them, besought His peace, and thus proceeded in her plaint. Forsake me not thus, Adam ! witness Heaven...
Page 268 - Those other two, equalled with me in fate So were I equalled with them in renown, Blind Thamyris, and blind Maeonides, And Tiresias and Phineus prophets old. Then feed on thoughts, that voluntary move Harmonious numbers; as the wakeful bird Sings darkling, and in shadiest covert hid Tunes her nocturnal note...

Page 268 - Thee I revisit safe, And feel thy sovran vital lamp ; but thou Revisit'st not these eyes, that roll in vain To find thy piercing ray, and find no dawn ; So thick a drop serene hath quenched their orbs, Or dim suffusion veiled.
Page 289 - Against God only, I against God and thee, And to the place of judgment will return, There with my cries importune Heaven, that all The sentence, from thy head removed, may light On me, sole cause to thee of all this woe,. Me, me only, just object of his ire!
Page 314 - L'évangile à l'esprit n'offre de tous côtés Que pénitence à faire et tourments mérités; Et de vos fictions le mélange coupable Même à ses vérités donne l'air de la fable.
