Example text

APOLLION: It slopes away on every side, like Earth, About its central peak, whence flows a spring That feeds four streams, the whole land watering: Trees, meadows fair, plantations all it slakes And, from translucent crystal, fashions lakes. The streams yield mud to fecundate the ground. There gems like onyx and bdellian abound. Up in the sky, by night, stars blazed and twinkled; Those diamond galaxies, by Nature sprinkled, Snuff out our own. There, rocks are golden-veined, As though all Nature’s wealth one womb contained!

Doing our duty, faithful servitors? To stand belittled, banished without cause, Demoted suddenly and sore chastised! REBEL 1: Our God-given Charter, once so dearly prized, Has been revoked! Instead of our own dominion – With and beneath the Lord – Adam, this minion, Shall reign, all-powerful, and kings beget! On Angels, all too soon, the sun has set! Comrades, lament with us our bliss mistaken! Alas, alas, why have we been forsaken? LOYALIST 1: You’re shocked by God’s and Gabriel’s command? That’s madness!

How sweetly scented is this foliage, still green! Such gold-and-crimson orbs were never seen! Pity it were to desecrate by touch – Enchanted sight! What mouth, assailed by such Could fail to water for Earth’s sweets? Who’s tasted These, on him celestial manna would be wasted! Our heaven he’d forswear in Eden’s favour And jettison our bliss, Man’s joy to savour! APOLLION: Indeed, Beelzebub! Heaven looks high: But truth to tell, we’re lower. Trust my eye! I’ve seen Earth’s luscious gardens and I swear, This paradise with Eden can’t compare … BEELZEBUB: Come, tell us what you saw!
