Excerpt from Nicodemus
ND now was come that last great day of the feast; The golden glory of a rising sun Decked roof and dome, and edged with lus trous line The gently swaying palms. Some slanting rays The hillside caught, to weave in spectrum looms Bright broidered vestinents for the pale myrtle And fragrant citron ﬂower. The modest moon, Intent on ﬂight, had left some shreds of mist With which she had draped her silver horn 5 this Bolder orb, with small regard for others' Gaze, swept first the valley clear, then poured His wealth of blazing light down Kedron's plain.
