What is Noble ? I I What is noble ?-to inherit Wealth, estate, and proud degree ?— There must be some other merit Higher yet than these for me — Something greater far must enter Into life's majestic span, Pitted to create and centre True nobility in man. What is noble ?—'tis the finer ( Portion of our mind and heart, ) Linked to something still diviner Than mere language can impart: Ever prompting—ever seeing Some improvement yet to plan To uplift our fellow being, And, like man, to feel for Man What is noble ?—is the pkoic Nobler than the humble spade ? There's a dignity in labour Truer than e'er pomp arrayed He who seqks the mind's improvement Aids the world, in aiding mind Every great commanding movement Serves not one, but all mankind. What is noble ?-that which places Truth in its enfranchised will, Laavin. steps, like angel-traces, That mankind may follow still! f E'en though scorn's malignant glances Prove him poorest of his clan, He's the Noble-who advances Freedom, and the Cause of Man 1
The Invocation and Introduction. (Paradise Lost.) Of man's first disobedience, and the fruit Of that forbidden tree, whose mortal taste Brought death into the world, and all our wee, With lass of Eden, till one greater Man I Restore us, and regain the blissful seat, Sing, heavenly Muse, that on the secret top Of Oreb, or of Sinai, didst inspire I That shepherd, who first taught the chosen seed, In the beginning, how the Heavens and Earth Hose out of Chaos or, if Zion hill Delight thee more, and Siloa's brook that flow-d Fast by the oracle of God I thence Invoke thy aid to my adventurous song, That with no middle flight intends to soar Above the Aonian mount, while it pursues Things unattempted yet in prose or rhyme. And chiefly thou, 0 Spirit, that dost prefer Before all temples, the upright heart and pure, Instruct me, for thou know'st; thou from the first Wast present, and, with mighty wings outspread. Dove-like sat'st brooding on the vast abyss And mad'st it pregnant: what in me is dark Illumine what is low raise and support; That to the height of this great argument I may assert eternal providence, And justify the ways of God to man. Say first, for Heaven hides nothing from thy view, Nor the deep tract of Hell; say first, what causa Moved our grand parents, in that happy state, Favoured of Heaven so highly, to fall off From their Creator, and transgress his will For one restraint, lords of the world besides ? Who first seduced them to that foul revolt ? The infernal serpent; he it was, whose guile, Stirr'd up with envy and revenge, deceived The mother of mankind, what time his pride Hod cast him out from Heaven, with all his host Of rebel angels by whose aid, aspiring To set himself in glory above his peers, He trusted to have equalled the Most High, If he opposed; and, with ambitious aim Against the throne and monarchy of God, Raised impious war in Heaven, and battle proud, With vain attempt. Him the Almighty power Hurl'd headlong flaming from the ethereal sky, With hideous ruin and combustion, down To bottomless perdition there to dwell In adamantine chains and penal fire, Who durst defy the Omnipotent to arms.
