am feeling sufficiently philanthropic this morning. so let me torture your brains kidogo.

a sniper of book 1 PARADISE LOST by John Milton.

( just say it in English)



O F Mans First Disobedience, and the
Fruit
Of that Forbidden Tree, whose mortal
tast
Brought Death into the World, and all
our woe ,
With loss of Eden , till one greater Man
Restore us, and regain the blissful Seat,
[ 5 ]
Sing Heav'nly Muse, that on the secret
top
Of Oreb , or of Sinai , didst inspire
That Shepherd, who first taught the
chosen Seed ,
In the Beginning how the Heav'ns and
Earth
Rose out of Chaos : Or if Sion Hill [ 10 ]
Delight thee more, and Siloa's Brook that
flow'd
Fast by the Oracle of God; I thence
Invoke thy aid to my adventrous Song ,
That with no middle flight intends to
soar
Above th' Aonian Mount , while it pursues
[ 15 ]
Things unattempted yet in Prose or
Rhime .
And chiefly Thou O Spirit, that dost
prefer
Before all Temples th' upright heart and
pure,
Instruct me, for Thou know'st; Thou
from the first
Wast present, and with mighty wings
outspread [ 20 ]
Dove-like satst brooding on the vast
Abyss
And mad'st it pregnant: What in me is
dark
Illumin, what is low raise and support;
That to the highth of this great Argument
I may assert Eternal Providence, [ 25 ]
And justifie the wayes of God to men.
