MiltonCompelled by a dragon-fate
You failed to see the face of ecstasy.
The want of sight and wives,
Had planted in you a venom-tree.
But 'Paradise Lost' of yours
Will never be lost with history's fleeting flow.
Our world treasures your boon
And yours was the life that suffered a giant blow.
Sri Chinmoy, Discoverers of Light, AUM Press, 1972
