One foot he centred, and the other turned Round through the vast profundity obscure : And said, " Thus far extend, thus far thy bounds, This be thy just circumference, O world...
Страница 153 - They, looking back, all the eastern side beheld Of Paradise, so late their happy seat, Waved over by that flaming brand, the gate With dreadful faces thronged and fiery arms: Some natural tears they dropped, but wiped them soon ; The world was all before them, where to choose Their place of rest, and Providence their guide: They hand in hand, with wandering steps and slow, Through Eden took their solitary way.
