The sky is changed!and such a change! O night, And storm, and darkness, ye are wondrous strong, Yet lovely in your strength, as is the light Of a dark eye in woman! Far along, From peak to peak the rattling crags among Leaps the live thunder! ByronChilde Harold. Canto III. St. 92.
Hark, hark! Deep sounds, and deeper still, Are howling from the mountains bosom: Theres not a breath of wind upon the hill, Yet quivers every leaf, and drops each blossom: Earth groans as if beneath a heavy load. ByronHeaven and Earth. Pt. I. Sc. 3.
As a storm-cloud lurid with lightning And a cry of lamentation, Repeated and again repeated, Deep and loud As the reverberation Of cloud answering unto cloud, Swells and rose away in the distance, As if the sheeted Lightning retreated, Baffled and thwarted by the winds resistance.
