(From The Mourning Bride, Act II. Scene III)

HOW reverend is the face of this tall pile
Whose ancient pillars rear their marble heads
To bear aloft its arched and ponderous roof,
By its own weight made steadfast and immovable,
Looking tranquillity! It strikes an awe        5
And terror on my aching sight. The tombs
And monumental caves of death look cold,
And shoot a dullness to my trembling heart!
