Milton

Compelled 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.
