„Methought I saw my late espousèd saint
Brought to me like Alcestis from the grave,
Whom Jove's great son to her glad husband gave,
Rescued from death by force, though pale and faint.

Mine, as whom wash'd from spot of child-bed taint
Purification in the old law did save;
And such, as yet once more I trust to have
Full sight of her in Heaven without restraint,

Came vested all in white, pure as her mind:
Her face was veil'd, yet to my fancied sight
Love, sweetness, goodness, in her person shined

So clear, as in no face with more delight.
But oh! as to embrace me she inslined,
I waked, she fled, and day brought back my night.“

Milton, „On his Deceased Wife“, written c. 1658. (zit. nach: Op. cit. (Southampton 1984), S. 61)
