John Milton. (1608–1674) (continued)
 
The white pink, and the pansy freakt with jet,
The glowing violet,
The musk-rose, and the well-attir’d woodbine,
With cowslips wan that hang the pensive head,
And every flower that sad embroidery wears.
          Lycidas. Line 139.
2748
    So sinks the day-star in the ocean bed,
And yet anon repairs his drooping head,
And tricks his beams, and with new-spangled ore
Flames in the forehead of the morning sky.
          Lycidas. Line 168.
2749
    He touch’d the tender stops of various quills,
With eager thought warbling his Doric lay.
          Lycidas. Line 188.
2750
    To-morrow to fresh woods and pastures new.
          Lycidas. Line 193.
2751
    Haste thee, Nymph, and bring with thee
Jest and youthful Jollity,
Quips and Cranks and wanton Wiles,
Nods and Becks and wreathed Smiles.
          L’Allegro. Line 25.
2752
    Sport, that wrinkled Care derides,
And Laughter holding both his sides.
Come and trip it as ye go,
On the light fantastic toe.
          L’Allegro. Line 31.
2753
    The mountain nymph, sweet Liberty.
          L’Allegro. Line 36.
2754
    And every shepherd tells his tale
Under the hawthorn in the dale.
          L’Allegro. Line 67.
2755
    Meadows trim with daisies pied,
Shallow brooks and rivers wide;
Towers and battlements it sees
Bosom’d high in tufted trees,
Where perhaps some beauty lies,
The cynosure of neighboring eyes.
          L’Allegro. Line 75.
2756
    Herbs, and other country messes,
Which the neat-handed Phillis dresses.
          L’Allegro. Line 85.
2757
    To many a youth and many a maid
Dancing in the chequer’d shade.
          L’Allegro. Line 95.
