Paradise Lost

So reading Radi os has me wanting to play with Paradise Lost myself, apparently. Nothing too complicated, here. Ten stanzas, with the number of the stanza corresponding to the n-gram at work and the number of lines in the stanza. Made with my good friend charNG using Milton’s Paradise Lost. Enjoy!

1.

hronosm. wansehwet. oweoaraip.

 2.
      I be thers
 andof theratof sheerthiore

  3.
  To lonese to proace imor 
    Inving fought,   
Sin of rightent.

   4.
Up to
       Wood, orious 
wells, 
         the low eye

    5.
      Ran to 
his bliss, what I
     tasternal
with us
Each of others not what all.

     6.
Atom, 
     founded long
       Severence expiate from her Hills, 
          indite
my 
      slumbring

      7.
      Stone
    wont to avoid
      The Heav'n; 
 Armd with her 
Rayes 
        fire
  Smooth, easiest to taste

       8.
         imblaz'd
 All secret spake, 
each divides
           Produces with labour still 
        thoughts and Heav'n
      to send In favour; peace 
          and weltring 
      measure overlov'd

        9.
and unmov'd to EVE renewd.
    So scoffing in ambiguous words his place
         No evil 
   durst attempt.
How due! yet why?
 it was
     a Rock Of DAVID (so 
I name this King) 
Holy, divinely

         10.
Soul 
        hath 
chief delight,
Mangl'd with eyes 
more 
numerous 
      hasten'd
As bands
     Of 
        Heaven

    Good stuff. The first couple of stanzas sound primordial, moving on up to holy comprehensibility. Kind of the reverse of your earlier poem They.
