Página 14 - High on the masts, with pale and livid rays, Amid the gloom portentous meteors blaze. Th' ethereal dome, in mournful pomp array'd, Now lurks behind impenetrable shade ; Now, flashing round intolerable light, Redoubles all the terrors of the night. Such terror Sinai's quaking hill o'erspread, When Heaven's loud trumpet sounded o'er its head.
Página 27 - Lift the fair sail, and cheat th' experienced eye. Be it the summer-noon : a sandy space The ebbing tide has left upon its place; Then, just the hot and stony beach above, Light twinkling streams in bright confusion move (For heated thus, the warmer air ascends, And with the cooler in its fall contends) ; Then the broad bosom of the ocean keeps An equal motion, swelling as it sleeps, Then slowly sinking; curling to the strand, Faint, lazy waves...
