With head, hands, wings, or feet, pursues his way,

| Thus with the year|
Seasons return; but not to me returns
Day, or the sweet approach of even or morn,
Or sight of vernal bloom or summers rose,
Or flocks, or herds, or human face divine;
But cloud instead, and ever-during dark
Surrounds me; from the cheerful ways of men
Cut off, and for the book of knowledge fair
Presented with a universal blank
Of Natures works, to me expungd and razd,
And wisdom at one entrance quite shut out.
| Paradise Lost. Book iii. Line 40.|

With joy and love triumphing.
