C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
Lines Printed under Milton’s Portrait
By John Dryden (1631–1700)
 
In Tonson’s Folio Edition of the ‘Paradise Lost,’ 1688

THREE poets, in three distant ages born,
Greece, Italy, and England did adorn.
The first in loftiness of thought surpassed,
The next in majesty, in both the last:
The force of Nature could no farther go;        5
To make a third she joined the former two.
