The Prophets

  Thy eagle-sighted prophets too, 
—Which were Thy Church’s organs, and did sound 
  That harmony which made of two 
One law, and did unite, but not confound ; 
              Those heavenly poets which did see 
              Thy will, and it express 
In rhythmic feet—in common pray for me, 
That I by them excuse not my excess 
In seeking secrets, or poeticness.
