Fly envious Time, till thou run out thy race,
Call on the lazy leaden-stepping hours,
Whose speed is but the heavy Plummets pace;
And glut thy self with what thy womb devours,
Which is no more then what is false and vain,
And meerly mortal dross;
So little is our loss,
So little is thy gain.
For when as each thing bad thou hast entomb'd,
And last of all, thy greedy self consum'd,                          
Then long Eternity shall greet our bliss
With an individual kiss;
And Joy shall overtake us as a flood,
When every thing that is sincerely good
And perfectly divine,
With Truth, and Peace, and Love shall ever shine
About the supreme Throne
Of him, t'whose happy-making sight alone,
When once our heav'nly-guided soul shall clime,
Then all this Earthy grosnes quit,                                  
Attir'd with Stars, we shall for ever sit,
Triumphing over Death, and Chance, and thee O Time.

This poem when set to a tune of dramatic flavour, with a deep voice reading creates another idea of not beating time in a sense to live forever, but to survive. Such as in wars, and acts of human cruelty. It is a triumph over the time until you die, by surviving these events. In the end the same results are reached. However the idea of beating time just by living seems to add something. It shows us the power of the human spirit and the nature of the human condition to fight the passing of time. It is grim to consider time passing, and to see it as a finite unreversible sequence of events. This poem incapsulates our fealings of time, but is also meant to give us hope. It is a poem of extremities. Of a powerful sadness, and an eternal joy.

John Milton was the first writer of 16th century,he started English epic poetry, religious stories and writing fell in the category of epic. Epic poetry define as a long narrative poem highlighting the grand deeds of warriors and heroes. The attitude of
poet about time is that he sees time as not in control of human being. The poet is personifying which means in poetry giving some qualities of living things to non living things. In this poem the poet is giving the qualities of men to time. He uses words as an
envious plummets, glut,greedy,divine,climb e.t.c. Just some observation about the nature of time. We can't see it, hear it, touch it or smell it. In other words it can't be perceived by physical senses. It belongs entirely to the domain of mind. Yet it is not imaginary but real because we recognize it.
Time is a cruel thing. Poet informs the time that keep running as much as you can run but
on doomsday you will have to stop. Time is glutting every thing e.g our life, our ages and even it self.
Every thing of this universe will reach at there destination. In the other half of the poem the poet is
describing the attributes of time in the next life. Where time becomes very helpless. Things are totally
save from the wrath of time. Which make sight happy. Milton has a strong belief in resurrection.
Where time is it self mortal. Milton is reflected as a true Christian because he shows complete faith in
next world. Where we shall triumph over time. He was also puritan because he was in the favor of
individual interpretation.
