by Browning, Robert in our art 
According to some preconceived design, 
And happed to hear the land's practitioners, 
Steeped in conceit sublimed by ignorance, 
Prattle fantastically on disease, 
Its cause and cure--and I must hold my peace! 

Thou wilt object--why have I not ere this 
Sought out the sage himself, the Nazarene 
Who wrought this cure, inquiring at the source, 
Conferring with the frankness that befits? 
Alas! it grieveth me, the learned leech 
Perished in a tumult many years a...Read More

...fortune dares he blame,Who owes his very fameTo me, his genius who sublimed, sustain'd,In the proud flight to which he, else, had dared not aim? "Well knows he how, in history's every page,The laurell'd chief, the monarch on his throne,The poet and the sage,Favourites of f...Read More

...m Pelorus, or the shattered side 
Of thundering Etna, whose combustible 
And fuelled entrails, thence conceiving fire, 
Sublimed with mineral fury, aid the winds, 
And leave a singed bottom all involved 
With stench and smoke. Such resting found the sole 
Of unblest feet. Him followed his next mate; 
Both glorying to have scaped the Stygian flood 
As gods, and by their own recovered strength, 
Not by the sufferance of supernal Power.

...t the bright consummate flower 
Spirits odorous breathes: flowers and their fruit, 
Man's nourishment, by gradual scale sublimed, 
To vital spirits aspire, to animal, 
To intellectual; give both life and sense, 
Fancy and understanding; whence the soul 
Reason receives, and reason is her being, 
Discursive, or intuitive; discourse 
Is oftest yours, the latter most is ours, 
Differing but in degree, of kind the same. 
Wonder not then, what God for you saw good 
If I refuse...Read More

...k the merchant sells?


And each bystander of them all
Could criticize, and quote tradition
How depths of blue sublimed some pall
---To get which, pricked a king's ambition
Worth sceptre, crown and ball.


Yet there's the dye, in that rough mesh,
The sea has only just o'erwhispered!
Live whelks, each lip's beard dripping fresh,
As if they still the water's lisp heard
Through foam the rock-weeds thresh.


Enough to furnish Solomon
Such hangin...Read More

...n you have heard no marriage is, 
No white flesh tinder to your lecheries, 
Your male and female tissue sweetly shaped 
Sublimed away, and furious blood escaped. 

Great lovers lie in Hell, the stubborn ones 
Infatuate of the flesh upon the bones; 
Stuprate, they rend each other when they kiss, 
The pieces kiss again, no end to this. 

But still I watched them spinning, orbited nice. 
Their flames were not more radiant than their ice. 
I dug in the quiet earth...Read More
