Portrait of Milton (from the Picture by Samuel Cooper)
This Portrait was formerly in the possession of Milton's daughter Deborah ;
it then passed into the hands of Sir William Davenant, and subsequently
into those of Sir Joshua Reynolds.
Find out some uncouth cell,
Where brooding Darkness spreads his jealous wings,
And the night raven sings.
Haste thee, nymph, and bring with thee
Jest, and youthful Jollity,
Sport that wrinkled Care derides,
And Laughter holding both his sides.
