This most affliets me, that, departing hence, As from his face I shall be hid, deprived His blessed countenance: here I could frequent With worship place by place where he vouchsafed Presence divine; and to my sons relate, On this mount he appeared; under this tree Stood visible; among these pines his voice I heard; here with him at this fountain talked: So many grateful altars I would rear Of grassy turf, and pile up every stone Of lustre from the brook, in memory Or monument to ages: and thereon Offer sweet-smelling gums, and fruits, and flowers In yonder nether world where shall I seek His bright appearances, or footstep trace For though I fled him angry, yet, reealled To life prolonged and promised race, I now Gladly behold though but his utmost skirts Of glory; and far off his steps adore To whom thus Michael with regard benign: Adam, thou knowest heaven his, and all the earth Not this rock only; his omnipresence fills Land, sea, and air, and every kind that lives, Fomented by his virtual power and warmed: All the earth he gave thee to possess and rule, No despieable gift; surmise not then His presence to these narrow bounds confined Of Paradise, or Eden: thi-had been Perhaps thy capital seat, from whence had spread All generations. . .
