    Her heavenly form
    Angelic, but more soft and feminine,
    Her graceful innocence, her every air
    Of gesture or least action, overawed
    His malice, and with rapine sweet bereaved
    His fierceness of the fierce intent it brought.
    That space of Evil One abstracted stood
    From his own evil, and for the time remained
    Stupidly good, of enmity disarmed,
    —John Milton (1608–1674)
