Quotation by John Milton

But see, the Virgin blest
Hath laid her Babe to rest:
Time is our tedious song should here have ending;
Heaven's youngest teemed star,
Hath fixed her polished car,
Her sleeping Lord with handmaid lamp attending;
And all about the courtly stable,
Bright-harnessed angels sit in order serviceable.
John Milton (1608–1674), British poet. On the Morning of Christ's Nativity (l. 209–216). . .
