Or let my lamp at midnight hour,
be seen in some high lonely tower,
where I may oft out-watch the bear,
with thrice great Hermes, or unsphere
the spirit of Plato to unfold
what worlds, or what vast regions hold
th’immortal mind that hath forsook
her mansion in this fleshly nook.

~ “Il penseroso”, Milton.
