On sands and shores and desert wildernesses.

These crystalline pavilions, and pure fanes?

Said then the lost Archangel, this the seat
That we must change for Heaven? this mournful gloom
For that celestial light?

(By the touch
Of scent,) not far from roses. Turning round,
I saw an arbour with a drooping roof
Of trellis vines, and bells, and larger blooms,
Like floral censers, swinging light in air;
Before its wreathed doorway, on a mound
Of moss, was spread a feast of summer fruits,
Which, nearer seen, seem'd refuse of a meal
By angel tasted or our Mother Eve;
For empty shells were scatter'd on the grass,
And grape-stalks but half bare, and remnants more,
Sweet-smelling, whose pure kinds I could not know....
Among the fragrant husks and berries crush'd
Upon the grass.

Fall of Hyperion, i. 23-34, 52–3.

Married to immortal verse.

Allegro, 136-7.
Mortal, that thou mayst understand aright,
I humanize my sayings to thine ear,
