From The Paradise Lost of John Milton (pub. 1846), Book 12, Line 641

Ushered out of Paradise by the Archangel Michael wielding a flaming sword, Adam and Eve look back before embarking into their new life outside of the Garden.

"They looking back, all th' Eastern side beheld
Of Paradise, so late thir happie seat,
Wav'd over by that flaming Brand, the Gate
With dreadful Faces throng'd and fierie Armes:
Som natural tears they drop'd, but wip'd them soon;
The World was all before them, where to choose
Thir place of rest, and Providence thir guide:
They hand in hand with wandring steps and slow,
Through Eden took thir solitarie way"
(Paradise Lost XII.641-49).
