RE: the second question, is it possible that Milton is speaking to himself
and all his thoughts as being brought along by sweet compulsion (hence, the
"us")?  So Milton the person as opposed to his thoughts would be "me," but
Milton along with all his thoughts, once his thoughts have been personified,
would be "us."  Since he's speaking of movement in the last quoted line, and
since his thoughts would go along with him wherever he went, speaking of
Milton and his thoughts as an "us" seems necessary.
