here begins thy Raigne, Scenes flow like Sun-beams from thy glorious Brain; Thy swift dispatching Soule no more doth stay Then He that built two Citties in one day; Ever brim full, and sometimes running o're To feede poore languid Witts that waite at doore, Who creep and creep, yet ne're above-ground stood, (For Creatures have most Feet which have least Blood) But thou art still that Bird of Paradise Which hath no feet and ever nobly flies: Rich, lusty Sence, such as the Poet ought, For Poems if not Excellent, are Naught; Low wit in Scenes?
--Paradise Lost, B. iii, l. 437.

One moon scarcely has waned, since, on a holiday, I came, careless and gay, into this paradise,-- Found here, wrapped in their cloaks made of a leaf, little White flowers, pure as the snow, modest and innocent,-- Stooped down, eagerly plucked one of the fairest, when Forth rushed, fresh from the stem broken thus wickedly, Blood!--tears, red, as of blood!--shed through my selfishness!

She now proposes spending the summer at Sorrento, or thereabouts; and if mere delight of landscape and climate were enough, Adam and Eve, had their courier taken them to that region, might have done well enough without Paradise,--and not been tempted, either, by any Tree of Knowledge; a kind that does not flourish in the Two Sicilies.
Or who can account for every mood that thralls him,--at times like one entranced in a dream by airs from Paradise,--at other times steeped in darkness, when the spirit of discord seems to marshal his every thought, one against another?

I would, dear daughter, you could see our great Duomo in Florence, which is a mountain of precious marbles and many-colored mosaics; and the Campanile that riseth thereby is like a lily of Paradise,--so tall, so stately, with such an infinite grace, and adorned all the way up with holy emblems and images of saints and angels; nor is there any part of it, within or without, that is not finished sacredly with care, as an offering to the most perfect God.
Here, if anywhere, is the lotos-eater's paradise,--the purple skies, the enchanted shores, the soothing gales, the dreamy mists, which all conspire to melt the energy of the will, and to make existence either a half-doze of dreamy apathy or an awaking of mad delirium.

"There were two cherub-things beside, A gracious girl, a glorious boy; Yet more to swell my fall-blown pride, To varnish higher my fading joy, Pleasures were ours without alloy, Nay, Paradise,--till my frail Eve Our bliss was tempted to destroy-- Deceived, and fated to deceive.

The Crucifixion, with its agonising deity and prostrate groups of women, sunk below the grief of tears;--the Temptation in the wilderness, with its passionate contrast of the grey-robed Man of Sorrows and the ruby-winged, voluptuous fiend;--the Temptation of Adam in Eden, a glowing allegory of the fascination of the spirit by the flesh;--Paradise, a tempest of souls, whirled like Lucretian atoms or gold dust in sunbeams by the celestial forces that perform the movement of the spheres;--the Destruction of the world, where all the fountains and rivers and lakes and seas of earth have formed one cataract, that thunders with cities and nations on its rapids down a bottomless gulf; while all the winds and hurricanes of the air have grown into one blast, that carries men like dead leaves up to judgment;--the Plague of the fiery serpents, with multitudes encoiled and writhing on a burning waste of sand;--the Massacre of the Innocents, with its spilth of blood on slippery pavements of porphyry and serpentine;--the Delivery of the tables of the law to Moses amid clouds on Sinai, a white ascetic, lightning-smitten man emerging in the glory of apparent godhead;--the anguish of the Magdalen above her martyred God;--the solemn silence of Christ before the throne of Pilate;--the rushing of the wings of Seraphim, and the clangour of the trumpet that awakes the dead;--these are the soul-stirring themes that Tintoretto handles with the ease of mastery.
Hail, land of the kangaroo!--paradise of the bushranger!--purgatory of England!--happy scene, where the sheep-stealer is metamorphosed into the shepherd; the highwayman is the guardian of the road; the dandy is delicate no more, and earns his daily bread; and the Court of Chancery is unknown--hail to thee, soil of larceny and love!
The frightened cackle of the hens, the rattling of pots and pans by the assiduous housewife in the kitchen, were unheeded by the lovers, "emparadised in one another's arms."
