J. Milton – Paradise Lost

with one vertuous touch
Th’ Archchimic Sun so farr from us remote
Produces with Terrestrial Humor mixt 
Here in the dark so many precious things
Of colour glorious and effect so rare

W. Turner – The Slave Ship

  1. One of the greatest poems in the English language. Thank you for sharing this!

    I like it too, the poem that is. Actually I like the picture too. As for Milton though I must admit to somewhat irrationally preferring the shorter poems – Lycidas and Samson Agonistes….
