|Newton, Sir Isaac|
|Nature and natures laws lay hid in night:|
God said, Let Newton be! and all was light.
Pope.Epitaph for Sir Isaac.
| Nature herself|
Stood all subdued by him, and open laid
Her every latent glory to his view.
|He also fixd our wandring queen of night,|
Whether she wanes into a scanty orb,
Or, waxing broad, with her pale shadowy light
In a soft deluge overflows the sky.
