Jonathan Blake, create something so evil that they now have to choose between their success and their secrets. Burlington, Wisconsin may not be the sleepy little town everyone believes it to be. Moon, that now meetst the orient Sun, now fli'st [ ] With the fixt Starrs , fixt in thir Orb that flies, And yee five other wandring Fires that move In mystic Dance not without Song, resound His praise, who out of Darkness call'd up Light. Aire , and ye Elements the eldest birth [ ] Of Natures Womb, that in quaternion run Perpetual Circle , multiform; and mix And nourish all things, let your ceasless change Varie to our great Maker still new praise.
Ye Mists and Exhalations that now rise [ ] From Hill or steaming Lake, duskie or grey, Till the Sun paint your fleecie skirts with Gold, In honour to the Worlds great Author rise, Whether to deck with Clouds th' uncolourd skie , Or wet the thirstie Earth with falling showers, [ ] Rising or falling still advance his praise.
His praise ye Winds, that from four Quarters blow, Breathe soft or loud; and wave your tops, ye Pines, With every Plant, in sign of Worship wave. Fountains and yee , that warble, as ye flow, [ ] Melodious murmurs, warbling tune his praise. Joyn voices all ye living Souls; ye Birds, That singing up to Heaven Gate ascend, Bear on your wings and in your notes his praise; Yee that in Waters glide, and yee that walk [ ] The Earth, and stately tread, or lowly creep; Witness if I be silent, Morn or Eeven , To Hill, or Valley, Fountain, or fresh shade Made vocal by my Song , and taught his praise.
Hail universal Lord, be bounteous still [ ] To give us onely good; and if the night Have gathered aught of evil or conceald , Disperse it, as now light dispels the dark. So pray'd they innocent, and to thir thoughts Firm peace recoverd soon and wonted calm. Them thus imploid beheld With pittie Heav'ns high King, and to him call'd [ ] Raphael , the sociable Spirit , that deign'd To travel with Tobias , and secur'd His marriage with the seaventimes -wedded Maid.
Raphael , said hee , thou hear'st what stir on Earth Satan from Hell scap't through the darksom Gulf [ ] Hath raisd in Paradise, and how disturbd This night the human pair, how he designes In them at once to ruin all mankind. Go therefore, half this day as friend with friend Converse with Adam , in what Bowre or shade [ ] Thou find'st him from the heat of Noon retir'd , To respit his day- labour with repast, Or with repose; and such discourse bring on, As may advise him of his happie state, Happiness in his power left free to will, [ ] Left to his own free Will, his Will though free, Yet mutable; whence warne him to beware He swerve not too secure : tell him withall His danger, and from whom, what enemie Late falln himself from Heav'n , is plotting now [ ] The fall of others from like state of bliss; By violence, no, for that shall be withstood, But by deceit and lies; this let him know, Lest wilfully transgressing he pretend Surprisal, unadmonisht , unforewarnd.
So spake th' Eternal Father, and fulfilld All Justice: nor delaid the winged Saint After his charge receivd ; but from among Thousand Celestial Ardors , where he stood Vaild with his gorgeous wings, up springing light [ ] Flew through the midst of Heav'n ; th' angelic Quires On each hand parting, to his speed gave way Through all th' Empyreal road; till at the Gate Of Heav'n arriv'd , the gate self- opend wide On golden Hinges turning, as by work [ ] Divine the sov'ran Architect had fram'd.
From hence, no cloud, or, to obstruct his sight, Starr interpos'd , however small he sees, Not unconform to other shining Globes, Earth and the Gard'n of God, with Cedars crownd [ ] Above all Hills. At once on th' Eastern cliff of Paradise [ ] He lights, and to his proper shape returns A Seraph wingd ; six wings he wore, to shade His lineaments Divine; the pair that clad Each shoulder broad, came mantling o're his brest With regal Ornament; the middle pair [ ] Girt like a Starrie Zone his waste , and round Skirted his loines and thighes with downie Gold And colours dipt in Heav'n ; the third his feet Shaddowd from either heele with featherd maile Skie - tinctur'd grain.
Like Maia's son he stood, [ ] And shook his Plumes, that Heav'nly fragrance filld The circuit wide. Strait knew him all the Bands Of Angels under watch; and to his state , And to his message high in honour rise; For on Som message high they guessd him bound. Him through the spicie Forrest onward com Adam discernd , as in the dore he sat Of his coole Bowre , while now the mounted Sun [ ] Shot down direct his fervid Raies , to warme Earths inmost womb, more warmth then Adam needs ; And Eve within, due at her hour prepar'd For dinner savourie fruits, of taste to please True appetite , and not disrelish thirst [ ] Of nectarous draughts between, from milkie stream, Berrie or Grape: to whom thus Adam call'd.
Haste hither Eve , and worth thy sight behold Eastward among those Trees, what glorious shape Comes this way moving; seems another Morn [ ] Ris'n on mid-noon; Som great behest from Heav'n To us perhaps he brings, and will voutsafe This day to be our Guest.
snapnapalite.tk But goe with speed, And what thy stores contain, bring forth and poure Abundance, fit to honour and receive [ ] Our Heav'nly stranger ; well we may afford Our givers thir own gifts, and large bestow From large bestowd , where Nature multiplies Her fertil growth, and by disburd'ning grows More fruitful, which instructs us not to spare. To whom thus Eve. Adam , earths hallowd mould , Of God inspir'd , small store will serve, where store, All seasons, ripe for use hangs on the stalk; Save what by frugal storing firmness gains To nourish, and superfluous moist consumes: [ ] But I will haste and from each bough and break , Each Plant and juiciest Gourd will pluck such choice To entertain our Angel guest, as hee Beholding shall confess that here on Earth God hath dispenst his bounties as in Heav'n.
So saying, with dispatchful looks in haste She turns, on hospitable thoughts intent What choice to chuse for delicacie best, What order, so contriv'd as not to mix Tastes, not well joynd , inelegant, but bring [ ] Taste after taste upheld with kindliest change, Bestirs her then, and from each tender stalk Whatever Earth all-bearing Mother yields In India East or West , or middle shoare In Pontus or the Punic Coast, or where [ ] Alcinous reign'd , fruit of all kindes , in coate , Rough, or smooth rin'd , or bearded husk, or shell She gathers, Tribute large, and on the board Heaps with unsparing hand; for drink the Grape She crushes, inoffensive moust , and meathes [ ] From many a berrie , and from sweet kernels prest She tempers dulcet creams, nor these to hold Wants her fit vessels pure, then strews the ground With Rose and Odours from the shrub unfum'd.
Mean while our Primitive great Sire, to meet [ ] His god-like Guest, walks forth, without more train Accompanied then with his own compleat Perfections; in himself was all his state, More solemn then the tedious pomp that waits On Princes, when thir rich Retinue long [ ] Of Horses led, and Grooms besmeard with Gold Dazles the croud , and sets them all agape. Neerer his presence Adam though not awd , Yet with submiss approach and reverence meek, As to a superior Nature, bowing low, [ ].
Thus said. Native of Heav'n , for other place None can then Heav'n such glorious shape contain; Since by descending from the Thrones above, Those happie places thou hast deignd a while To want, and honour these, voutsafe with us [ ] Two onely , who yet by sov'ran gift possess This spacious ground, in yonder shadie Bowre To rest, and what the Garden choicest bears To sit and taste, till this meridian heat Be over, and the Sun more coole decline. Whom thus the Angelic Vertue answerd milde. Adam , I therefore came, nor art thou such Created, or such place hast here to dwell, As may not oft invite, though Spirits of Heav'n To visit thee; lead on then where thy Bowre [ ] Oreshades; for these mid-hours, till Eevning rise I have at will.
So to the Silvan Lodge They came, that like Pomona 's Arbour smil'd With flourets deck't and fragrant smells; but Eve Undeckt , save with her self more lovely fair [ ] Then Wood-Nymph, or the fairest Goddess feign'd Of three that in Mount Ida naked strove , Stood to entertain her guest from Heav'n ; no vaile Shee needed, Vertue -proof, no thought infirme Alterd her cheek.
Rais'd of grassie terf Thir Table was, and mossie seats had round, And on her ample Square from side to side All Autumn pil'd , though Spring and Autumn here Danc'd hand in hand.

A while discourse they hold; [ ] No fear lest Dinner coole ; when thus began Our Authour. Heav'nly stranger, please to taste These bounties which our Nourisher, from whom All perfet good unmeasur'd out, descends , To us for food and for delight hath caus'd [ ] The Earth to yeild ; unsavourie food perhaps To spiritual Natures; only this I know, That one Celestial Father gives to all. To whom the Angel. Therefore what he gives Whose praise be ever sung to man in part [ ] Spiritual, may of purest Spirits be found No ingrateful food: and food alike those pure Intelligential substances require As doth your Rational; and both contain Within them every lower facultie [ ] Of sense, whereby they hear, see, smell, touch, taste, Tasting concoct, digest, assimilate , And corporeal to incorporeal turn.
For know, whatever was created, needs To be sustaind and fed; of Elements [ ] The grosser feeds the purer, Earth the Sea, Earth and the Sea feed Air, the Air those Fires Ethereal, and as lowest first the Moon; Whence in her visage round those spots, unpurg'd Vapours not yet into her substance turnd. The Sun that light imparts to all, receives From all his alimental recompence In humid exhalations, and at Even [ ] Sups with the Ocean: though in Heav'n the Trees Of life ambrosial frutage bear, and vines Yield Nectar, though from off the boughs each Morn We brush mellifluous Dewes , and find the ground Cover'd with pearly grain: yet God hath here [ ] Varied his bounty so with new delights, As may compare with Heaven; and to taste Think not I shall be nice.
So down they sat, And to thir viands fell, nor seemingly The Angel, nor in mist, the common gloss [ ] Of Theologians, but with keen dispatch Of real hunger, and concoctive heate To transubstantiate ; what redounds, transpires Through Spirits with ease; nor wonder; if by fire Of sooty coal the Empiric Alchimist [ ] Can turn, or holds it possible to turn Metals of drossiest Ore to perfet Gold As from the Mine. Mean while at Table Eve Ministerd naked , and thir flowing cups With pleasant liquors crown'd : O innocence [ ] Deserving Paradise!
Thus when with meats and drinks they had suffic'd [ ] Not burd'nd Nature, sudden mind arose In Adam , not to let th' occasion pass Given him by this great Conference to know Of things above his World, and of thir being [ ] Who dwell in Heav'n , whose excellence he saw Transcend his own so farr , whose radiant forms Divine effulgence, whose high Power so far Exceeded human, and his wary speech Thus to th' Empyreal Minister he fram'd.
Inhabitant with God, now know I well Thy favour , in this honour done to man, Under whose lowly roof thou hast voutsaf't To enter, and these earthly fruits to taste, Food not of Angels, yet accepted so, [ ] As that more willingly thou couldst not seem At Heav'n's high feasts to have fed: yet what compare?

To whom the winged Hierarch repli'd. O Adam , one Almightie is, from whom All things proceed, and up to him return, [ ] If not deprav'd from good, created all Such to perfection, one first matter all , Indu'd with various forms, various degrees Of substance, and in things that live, of life; But more refin'd , more spiritous, and pure, [ ] As neerer to him plac't or neerer tending Each in thir several active Sphears assignd , Till body up to spirit work, in bounds Proportiond to each kind. So from the root Springs lighter the green stalk, from thence the leaves [ ] More aerie , last the bright consummate floure Spirits odorous breathes: flours and thir fruit Mans nourishment, by gradual scale sublim'd To vital Spirits aspire, to animal, To intellectual, give both life and sense, [ ] Fansie and understanding, whence the Soule Reason receives, and reason is her being, Discursive , or Intuitive; discourse Is oftest yours, the latter most is ours, Differing but in degree, of kind the same.
Mean while enjoy Your fill what happiness this happie state Can comprehend, incapable of more. To whom the Patriarch of mankind repli'd , O favourable spirit, propitious guest, Well hast thou taught the way that might direct Our knowledge, and the scale of Nature set From center to circumference, whereon [ ] In contemplation of created things By steps we may ascend to God.
But say, What meant that caution joind , if ye be found Obedient? Son of Heav'n and Earth, Attend: That thou art happie , owe to God; [ ] That thou continu'st such, owe to thy self, That is, to thy obedience; therein stand. This was that caution giv'n thee; be advis'd.

God made thee perfet , not immutable ; And good he made thee, but to persevere [ ] He left it in thy power, ordaind thy will By nature free, not over- rul'd by Fate Inextricable, or strict necessity; Our voluntarie service he requires, Not our necessitated, such with him [ ] Finds no acceptance, nor can find, for how Can hearts, not free, be tri'd whether they serve Willing or no, who will but what they must By Destinie , and can no other choose?
Myself and all th' Angelic Host that stand [ ] In sight of God enthron'd , our happie state Hold, as you yours, while our obedience holds; On other surety none; freely we serve Because we freely love, as in our will To love or not; in this we stand or fall: [ ] And Som are fall'n , to disobedience fall'n , And so from Heav'n to deepest Hell; O fall From what high state of bliss into what woe!
To whom our great Progenitor. Thy words Attentive, and with more delighted eare [ ] Divine instructer, I have heard, then when Cherubic Songs by night from neighbouring Hills Aereal Music send: nor knew I not To be both will and deed created free; Yet that we never shall forget to love [ ] Our maker, and obey him whose command Single, is yet so just, my constant thoughts Assur'd me and still assure: though what thou tellst Hath past in Heav'n , Som doubt within me move, But more desire to hear, if thou consent, [ ] The full relation, which must needs be strange, Worthy of Sacred silence to be heard; And we have yet large day, for scarce the Sun Hath finisht half his journey, and scarce begins His other half in the great Zone of Heav'n.
Thus Adam made request, and Raphael After short pause assenting, thus began. High matter thou injoinst me, O prime of men, Sad task and hard, for how shall I relate To human sense th' invisible exploits [ ] Of warring Spirits; how without remorse The ruin of so many glorious once And perfet while they stood; how last unfould The secrets of another World, perhaps Not lawful to reveal? Thus when in Orbes Of circuit inexpressible they stood, [ ] Orb within Orb, the Father infinite, By whom in bliss imbosom'd sat the Son, Amidst as from a flaming Mount , whose top Brightness had made invisible, thus spake.
This day I have begot whom I declare My onely Son, and on this holy Hill Him have anointed, whom ye now behold [ ] At my right hand; your Head I him appoint; And by my Self have sworn to him shall bow All knees in Heav'n , and shall confess him Lord : Under his great Vice-gerent Reign abide United as one individual Soule [ ] For ever happie : him who disobeyes Mee disobeyes , breaks union, and that day Cast out from God and blessed vision, falls Into utter darkness, deep ingulft , his place Ordaind without redemption, without end.
So spake th' Omnipotent, and with his words All seemd well pleas'd , all seem'd , but were not all. That day, as other solemn dayes , they spent In song and dance about the sacred Hill, Mystical dance, which yonder starrie Spheare [ ] Of Planets and of fixt in all her Wheeles Resembles nearest, mazes intricate, Eccentric , intervolv'd , yet regular Then most, when most irregular they seem, And in thir motions harmonie Divine [ ] So smooths her charming tones, that Gods own ear Listens delighted.
