What Milton Forgot

Did I request, thee Maker, from my clay
To mold Me man? Did I solicit thee
From darkness to promote me…?

three lines from Milton ‘s “Paradise Lost” bellow what he left out,

Did, thee Maker, bestow Reason upon the clay?
Demanding Me, unreasoning faithful slave?
Demanding glory,
As being Maker
does not satisfy only?
