=Light.=

Hail, holy Light! offspring of Heaven first-born!
Or of the Eternal coeternal beam,
May I express thee unblam'd? since God is light,
And never but in unapproached light
Dwelt from eternity, dwelt then in thee,
Bright effluence of bright essence increate!

MILTON: _Par. Lost,_ Bk. iii., Line 1.

But yet the light that led astray
Was light from heaven.

BURNS: _The Vision._

The light that never was, on sea or land;
The consecration, and the Poet's dream.

WORDSWORTH: _Suggested by a Picture of Peele Castle in a Storm,_ St. 4.

Light, light, and light! to break and melt in sunder
All clouds and chains that in one bondage bind
Eyes, hands, and spirits, forged by fear and wonder
And sleek fierce fraud with hidden knife behind.

SWINBURNE: _Eve of Revolution,_ St. 10.
