And now by some strong motion I am led [ ] Into this Wilderness, to what intent I learn not yet, perhaps I need not know; For what concerns my knowledge God reveals. So spake our Morning Star then in his rise, And looking round on every side beheld [ ] A pathless Desert, dusk with horrid shades; The way he came not having mark'd, return.
