Sabrina rises, attended by water-Nymphs.

By dimpled Brook, and Fountain brim/The Wood-Nymphs, deckt with Daisies trim/Their merry wakes and pastimes keep.

posthorn:

“…O theevish Night 
Why shouldst thou, but for som fellonious end, 
In thy dark lantern thus close up the Stars, 
That nature hung in Heav’n, and fill’d their Lamps 
With everlasting oil, to give due light 
To the misled and lonely Travailer?”

From Milton’s Comus, illustrations by Arthur Rackham.
