NaPoWriMo Poem 16 Erasure

(Erasure of lines 42-83 of Paradise Lost: Book 1 By John Milton.)


God rais’d impious War in Heav’n.

The Almighty Power defie Day and Night.


Mortal men confounded immortal doom,

Lost happiness, lasting pain, torments,

Baleful eyes, huge affliction, and dismay.

As the Situation flam’d, those flames,

Darkness visible, discover hope.


But torture urges Eternal Justice prepar’d,

For those rebellious portion set God thrice to th’ Pole,

There with Floods and Whirlwinds.


He by his side: One next himself,

Known Palestine and nam’d.

Heav’n, with bold words began.
