But first and chiefest, with thee bring
  Him that yon soars on golden wing,
    Guiding the fiery-wheeled throne,
      The Cherub Contemplation.
      - Il Penseroso (l. 51) [Contemplation]

Sweet bird that shunn'st the nose of folly,
  Most musical, most melancholy!
    Thee, chauntress, oft, the woods among,
      I woo, to hear thy even-song.
      - Il Penseroso (l. 61) [Nightingales]

Where glowing embers through the room
  Teach light to counterfeit a gloom.
      - Il Penseroso (l. 79) [Light]

The gay motes that people the sunbeams.
      - Il Penseroso (l. 8) [Sun]

Far from all resort of mirth,
  Save the cricket on the hearth.

And add to these retired Leisure,
  That in trim gardens takes his pleasure.

And ever, against eating cares,
  Lap me in soft Lydian airs.
      - L'Affegro (l. 135) [Care]

While the cock with lively din
  Scatters the rear of darkness thin,
    And to the stack or the barn door
      Stoutly struts his dames before.
      - L'Allegro [Cocks]

Then to the spicy nut-brown ale.
      - L'Allegro (l. 100) [Drinking]

Towered cities please us then,
  And the busy hum of men.
      - L'Allegro (l. 117) [Cities]

Ladies, whose bright eyes
  Rain influence.
      - L'Allegro (l. 121) [Eyes]

Then to the well-trod stage anon
  If Jonson's learned sock be on,
    Or sweetest Shakespeare, Fancy's child,
      Warble his native wood-notes wild.
      - L'Allegro (l. 131) [Shakespeare]

Lap me in soft Lydian airs,
  Married to immortal verse,
    Such as the meeting soul may pierce,
      In notes, with many a winding bout
        Of linked sweetness long drawn out.
      - L'Allegro (l. 136) [Poetry]

Untwisting all the chains that tie the hidden soul of harmony.
      - L'Allegro (l. 143) [Music]

Zephyr, with Aurora playing
  As he met her once a-Maying.
      - L'Allegro (l. 19) [Aurora]

Haste thee, Nymph, and bring with thee
  Jest, and youthful Jollity,
    Quips, and Cranks, and wanton Wiles,
      Nods, and Becks, and wreathed Smiles,
        Such as hand on Hebe's cheek,
          And love to live in dimple sleek;
            Sport that wrinkled Care derides,
              And Laughter holding both his sides.
      - L'Allegro (l. 25) [Laughter]

Quips and Cranks and wanton Wiles,
  Nods and Becks and wreathed Smiles.

Come and trip it as ye go,
  On the light fantastic toe.
      - L'Allegro (l. 33) [Dancing]

Mirth, admit me of thy crew,
  To live with her, and live with thee,
    In unreprov'd pleasures free.
      - L'Allegro (l. 38) [Merriment]

To hear the lark begin his flight,
  And singing startle the dull Night,
    From his watch-tower in the skies,
      Till the dappled dawn doth rise.
      - L'Allegro (l. 41) [Larks]

And every shepherd tells his tale
  Under the hawthorn in the dale.

Of herbs, and other country messes,
