JOHANNIS MILTON I.

Q

[ocr errors]

UI legis AMISSAM PARADISUM, grandia Magni
Carmina Miltoni, quid nisi cuncta legis ?

Res cunctas, & cunctarum primordia rerum,
Et fata, & fines, continet iste liber.
Intima panduntur magni penetralia mundi ;

Scribitur & toto quicquid in orbe latet :
Terræque, tractusque maris, cælumque profundum,

Sulphureumque Erebi, flammivomumque fpecus.
Quæque colunt terras, pontumque, & Tartara cæca;

Quæque colunt summi lucida regna poli.
Et quodcunque ullis conclusum est finibus usquam;

Et fine fine Chaos, & sine fine DEUS:
Et sine fine magis, (fi quid magis est sine fine)

In CHRISTO erga homines conciliatus amor.
Hæc qui fperaret, quis crederet effe futura ?

Et tamen hæc hodiè terra Britanna legit.
O quantos in bella Duces, quæ protulit arma!
Quæ canit, & quantâ prælia dira tubâ !
