O MIGHTY-MOUTH'D INVENTOR OF HARMONIES,
O SKILL'D TO SING OF TIME OR ETERNITY,
GOD.GIFTED ORGAN - VOICE OF ENGLAND,
MILTON, A NAME TO RESOUND FOR AGES;
WHOSE TITAN ANGELS, GABRIEL, ABDIEL,
STARR'D FROM JEHOVAH'S GORGEOUS ARMOURIES,
TOWER, AS THE DEEP-DOMED EMPYREAN
RINGS TO THE ROAR OF AN ANGEL ONSET-
ME RATHER ALL THAT BOWERY LONELINESS,
THE BROOKS OF EDEN MAZILY MURMURING,
AND BLOOM PROFUSE AND CEDAR ARCHES
CHARM, AS A WANDERER OUT IN OCEAN,
WHERE SOME REFULGENT SUNSET OF INDIA
STREAMS O'ER A RICH AMBROSIAL OCEAN ISLE,
AND CRIMSON-HUED THE STATELY PALM WOODS
WHISPER IN ODOROUS HEIGHTS OF EVEN.

Tennyson. III.

LAST POEMS, 1665–1671.
