  10. 10. Christoper Smart, Jubilate Agno, Fragment BFor I will consider my Cat Jeoffry.For he is the servant of the Living God, duly and daily serving him.For at the first glance of the glory of God in the East he worships in his way.For is this done by wreathing his body seven times round with elegantquickness.For then he leaps up to catch the musk, which is the blessing of God upon hisprayer.For he rolls upon prank to work it in.For having done duty and received blessing he begins to consider himself.For this he performs in ten degrees.For first he looks upon his forepaws to see if they are clean.For secondly he kicks up behind to clear away there.For thirdly he works it upon stretch with the forepaws extended.For fourthly he sharpens his paws by wood.

John Donne, Holy SonnetsBatter my heart, three-persond God, for youAs yet but knock, breathe, shine, and seek to mend;That I may rise and stand, oerthrow me, and bendYour force to break, blow, burn, and make me new.I, like an usurpd town to another due,Labor to admit you, but oh, to no end;Reason, your viceroy in me, me should defend,But is captivd, and proves weak or untrue.Yet dearly I love you, and would be lovd fain,But am betrothd unto your enemy;Divorce me, untie or break that knot again,Take me to you, imprison me, for I,Except you enthrall me, never shall be free,Nor ever chaste, except you ravish me.
