„How glorious is thy girdle cast
O'er mountain, tower, and town“

—  Thomas Campbell
Theodric : A Domestic Tale; and Other Poems (1825), To the Rainbow, Context: p>How glorious is thy girdle cast O'er mountain, tower, and town, Or mirror'd in the ocean vast, A thousand fathoms down! As fresh in yon horizon dark, As young thy beauties seem, As when the eagle from the ark First sported in thy beam.For, faithful to its sacred page, Heaven still rebuilds thy span, Nor lets the type grow pale with age That first spoke peace to man.</p

The darkening world, and tempest-troubled deep!“

And, when its short and sullen noon is o'er, The ice-chained waters slumbering on the shore, How bright the fagots in his little hall Blaze on the hearth, and warm the pictured wall! Part II, line 115–124

And coming events cast their shadows before.“

The first-made anthem rang
On earth deliver'd from the deep,

„Angel of life! thy glittering wings explore
Earth's loneliest bounds, and Ocean's wildest shore.“

—  Thomas Campbell
Pleasures of Hope (1799), Context: p>Auspicious Hope! in thy sweet garden grow Wreaths for each toil, a charm for every woe: Won by their sweets, in nature's languid hour, The way-worn pilgrim seeks thy summer bower;There, as the wild bee murmurs on the wing, What peaceful dreams thy handmaid spirits bring! What viewless forms th' Æolian organ play, And sweep the furrow'd lines of anxious thought away!Angel of life! thy glittering wings explore Earth's loneliest bounds, and Ocean's wildest shore.</p Part I, lines 45 - 54

And yet, fair bow, no fabling dreams, But words of the Most High, Have told why first thy robe of beams Was woven in the sky.</p
