Paradise Lost

The Epic Argument
Of man's first disobedience and the fruit
Of that forbidden tree, whose mortal taste
Brought death into the world, and all our woe,
With loss of Eden, till one greater Man
Restore us, and regain the blissful seat,
Sing Heav'nly Muse....
....What in me is dark
Illumine, what is low raise and suport;
That to the highth of this great argument
I may assert Eternal Providence,
And justify the ways of God to men
