John Milton. (1608–1674) (continued)
 
And happy constellations on that hour
Shed their selectest influence; the earth
Gave sign of gratulation, and each hill;
Joyous the birds; fresh gales and gentle airs
Whisper’d it to the woods, and from their wings
Flung rose, flung odours from the spicy shrub.

    The sum of earthly bliss.
          Paradise Lost. Book viii. Line 522.

    So well to know
Her own, that what she wills to do or say
Seems wisest, virtuousest, discreetest, best.

    Accuse not Nature: she hath done her part;
Do thou but thine.
          Paradise Lost. Book viii. Line 561.

Than self-esteem, grounded on just and right
Well manag’d. 1

    Those graceful acts,
Those thousand decencies that daily flow
From all her words and actions.

    With a smile that glow’d
Celestial rosy red, love’s proper hue.
          Paradise Lost. Book viii. Line 618.
2639
    My unpremeditated verse.
          Paradise Lost. Book ix. Line 24.
2640
    Pleas’d me, long choosing and beginning late.
          Paradise Lost. Book ix. Line 26.
2641
    Unless an age too late, or cold
Climate, or years, damp my intended wing.
          Paradise Lost. Book ix. Line 44.
2642
    Revenge, at first though sweet,
Bitter ere long back on itself recoils.
          Paradise Lost. Book ix. Line 171.
2643
    The work under our labour grows,
Luxurious by restraint.
          Paradise Lost. Book ix. Line 208.
2644
    Smiles from reason flow,
To brute deny’d, and are of love the food.
          Paradise Lost. Book ix. Line 239.
