Quotation by John Milton

Ring out, ye crystal spheres,
Once bless our human ears
(If ye have power to touch our senses so),
And let your silver chime
Move in melodious time,
And let the bass of heaven's deep organ blow;
And with your ninefold harmony
Make up full consort to the angelic symphony.
John Milton (1608–1674), British poet. On the Morning of Christ's Nativity (l. 97–104). . .
