In perfect phalanx, to the Dorian mood
Of flutes and soft recorders.

All her original brightness, nor appear’d

On half the nations, and with fear of change
Perplexes monarchs.

    Mammon, the least erected spirit that fell
From heaven; for ev’n in heaven his looks and thoughts
Were always downward bent, admiring more
The riches of heaven’s pavement, trodden gold,
Than aught divine or holy else enjoy’d
In vision beatific.

That riches grow in hell: that soil may best
Deserve the precious bane.

To noon he fell, from noon to dewy eve,—
A summer’s day; and with the setting sun
Dropp’d from the Zenith like a falling star.

    Fairy elves,
Whose midnight revels by a forest side
Or fountain some belated peasant sees,
Or dreams he sees, while overhead the moon
Sits arbitress.
          Paradise Lost. Book i. Line 781.
