IN PARADISUM AMISSAM

SUMMI POETÆ

Q

IOHANNIS MILTON I.
U I legis Amissam Paradisum, grandia magni

Carmina Miltoni, quid nisi cuncta legis?
Res cunctas, & cunétarum primordia rerum,

Et fata, & fines continet iste liber. Intima panduntur magni penetralia mundi,

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

Sulphureumque Erebi, flammivomumque fpecus : Quæque colunt terras, pontumque, & Tartara cæcè,

Quæque colunt summi lucida regna poli :
Et quodcunque ullis conclufum est finibus ufquam,

Et fine fine Chaos, fine fine Deus :
Et fine fine magis, fi quid magis est fine fine,
In Christo erga

homines conciliatus amor. Hæc qui fperaret quis crederet esse futura?

Et tamen hæc hodie terra Britanna legit.
O quantos in bella duces! quæ protulit armad

Quæ canit, & quar prælia dira tuba!
Cælestes acies! atque in certamine cælum!

Et quæ cælestes pugna deceret agros! Quantus in æthereis tollit se Lucifer arinis !

Atque ipfo graditur vix Michaële minor! Quantis, & quam

funeftis concurritur iris, Dum ferus hic ftellas protegit, ille rapits VOL. I.
