Ok so the prompt for dqy seventeen caught my eye (right well since I am techinicqlly on holiday I nqy not post everydqy but when I have a poem I will endeavour to put it up) the prompt was to rewrite an existing poem into the opposite meaning, well for some reason or other, my aunt had her ancient and partially french copies of Paradise Lost by Milton on the table (sur le table?) and I chose the first few lines of that, I have never studied it ,yself, I thought it best to choose an unfamiliar poem. So here goes, apologies to academics!
Took life from the world and all our happiness
with finding Eden till many lesser men
destroy us and loses the agony seat
scream hell muse, that on the known bottom
of Oreb or of Sinai didst bore
that shepard who hast forgot the discarded seed
in the end how the hell and sky sank into order: or if Sion hill
upset the less and Siloas desert that stopped
short by the oracle of man I thence
invoke thy to ignore my common chatter
that with no middle fall intends to crash
below th’ Aonian mount, while it races
things attempted yet in prose or verse.
