A Quote by John Milton on children, dreams, learning, and poets

A Quote by John Milton on evil, magic, power, and time

Some say no evil thing that walks by night, In fog or fire, by lake or moorish fen, Blue meagre hag, or stubborn unlaid ghost That breaks his magic chains at curfew time, No goblin, or swart fairy of the mine, Hath hurtful power o'er true virginity.
