Victorian rhimes

Postby Kalailan » Sun Nov 30, 2003 2:20 pm

i have a question.
how can the two last lines rhime?
"To thee we sing, our holiest, fairest god,
The One who in that awful chaos trod
And woke the Elements by Law of Love
To teeming worlds in harmony to move."
(a prize to who ever recognises it. hint: its a translation.)
was the pronunciation different in the victorian times?
here is more:
"Come nestle closely with those lips of love
And balmy breath, and I with thee shall rove"
