In Discourse More Sweet; For Eloquence The Soul, Song Charms The Sense.

In discourse more sweet;
For eloquence the soul, song charms the sense.
Others apart sat on a hill retir'd,
In thoughts more elevate, and reason'd high
Of providence, foreknowledge, will, and fate,
Fix'd fate, free-will, foreknowledge absolute;
And found no end, in wand'ring mazes lost.
-- John Milton (1608-1674)
-- Paradise Lost, Book ii, Line 555
