I wield the flail of the lashing hail, And whiten the green plains under, And then again I dissolve it in rain, And laugh as I pass in thunder.
O lyric Love, half angel and half bird; And all a wonder and a wild desire, Boldest of hearts that ever braved the sun, Took sanctuary within the holier blue, And sang a kindred soul out to his face, Yet human at the red-ripe of the heart; When the first summons from the darkling earth Reached thee amid thy chambers, blanched their blue, And bared them of the glory to drop down, To toil for man, to suffer or to die, This is the same voice: can thy soul know change? Hail then, and hearken from the realms of help!Robert Browning
Hail to the Chief who in honour advances! Honoured and bless'd be the evergreen Pine!
All my house, But now, steamed like a bath with her thick breath. A lawyer could not have been heard; nor scarce Another woman, such a Hail of words She has let fall.Ben Jonson
The big, shoe-thumping fellow continues as a dark thunderhead to threaten all unrepentant non-Communists with Hail and thunder.dag hammarskjöld
Hail nothing full of nothing, nothing is with thee.
Hail holy Light, offspring of Heav'n first-born. Bright effluence of bright essence increate.john milton
Hail, Sphinx: salutation from Julius Caesar! I have wandered in many lands, seeking the lost regions from which my birth into this world exiled me, and the company of creatures such as I myself. I have found flocks and pastures, men and cities, but no other Caesar, no air native to me, no man kindred to me, none who can do my day's deed, and think my night's thought.George Bernard Shaw
Hail, gentle Dawn! mild blushing goddess, Hail! Rejoic'd I see thy purple mantle spread O'er half the skies, gems pave thy radiant way, And orient pearls from ev'ry shrub depend.william somervile
Hail, horrors, Hail, Infernal world! and thou profoundest hell, Receive thy new possessor.john milton

Edina! Scotia's darling seat, All Hail thy palaces and tow'rs, Where once beneath a monarch's feet Sat Legislation's sov'reign pow'rs.Robert Burns
Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: hethat believeth shall not make haste.Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the Hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.Bible (Old Testament)
Today there is a wide measure of agreement, which on the physical side of science approaches almost to unanimity, that the stream of knowledge is heading towards a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine. Mind no longer appears as an accidental intruder into the realm of matter; we are beginning to suspect that we ought rather to Hail it as a creator and governor of the realm of matter...james jeans
Lo, the dead shall rise to heaven! Brethren Hail the blest decree; Every sin shall be forgiven, Hell forever cease to be!friedrich von schiller
Cease, cease, wayward Mortal! I dare not unveil The shadows that float o’er Eternity’s vale; Nought waits for the good but a spirit of Love, That will Hail their blest advent to regions above. For Love, Mortal, gleams through the gloom of my sway, And the shades which surround me fly fast at its ray.Percy Bysshe Shelley
I bring fresh showers for the thirsting flowers, From the seas and the streams; I bear light shade for the leaves when laid In their noonday dreams. From my wings are shaken the dews that waken The sweet buds every one, When rocked to rest on their mother's breast, As she dances about the sun. I wield the flail of the lashing Hail, And whiten the green plains under, And then again I dissolve it in rain, And laugh as I pass in thunder.Percy Bysshe Shelley
In you are sent The types of Truths whose life is THE TO COME; In you soars up the Adam from the fall; In you the FUTURE as the PAST is given Ev'n in our death ye bid us Hail our birth; Unfold these pages, and behold the Heaven, Without one grave-stone left upon the Earth.Lytton
Merlin in our time Hath spoken also, not in jest , and sworn Though men may wound him that he will not die , But pass, again to come; and then or now Utterly smite the heathen underfoot, Till these and all men Hail him for their king.
"Niagara! wonder of this western world, And half the world beside! Hail, beauteous queen Of cataracts!" An angel who had been O'er heaven and earth, spoke thus, his bright wings furled, And knelt to Nature first, on this wild cliff unseen.
At the Captain's mess, in the Banquet-hall, Sat feasting the officers, one and all Like a sabre-blow, like the swing of a sail, One raised his glass, held high to Hail, Sharp snapped like the stroke of a rudder's play, Spoke three words only: "To the day!"
Thrilled ye ever with the story How on stricken fields of glory Men have stood beneath the murderous iron Hail!
