'Tis not, what once it was, the world; But a rude heap together hurl'd.
Who sees with equal eye, as God of all, A hero perish, or a sparrow fall, Atoms or systems into ruin hurl'd, And now a bubble burst, and now a world.Alexander Pope
When time itself shall be no more, And all things in confusion hurl'd, Music shall then exert it's power, And sound survive the ruins of the world
Gentle powers, forbear! Twere worse than all my miseries foreseen Should my huge wreck suck down the friendly skiffs That proffer'd aid. Oh! would that Jupiter Had hurl'd me to the deep of Erebus, Where neither god nor man might pity me.hartley coleridge
When time itself shall be no more, And all things in confusion hurl'd, Music shall then exert it's power, And sound survive the ruins of the world: Then saints and angels shall agree In one eternal jubilee: All Heaven shall echo with their hymns divine, And God himself with pleasure see The whole creation in a chorus join.joseph addison
Despise it not, ye Bards to terror steel'd,Who hurl'd your thunders round the epic field;Nor ye who strain your midnight throats to singJoys that the vineyard and the still-house bring;Or on some distant fair your notes employ,And speak of raptures that you ne'er enjoy.I sing the sweets I know, the charms I feel,My morning incense, and my evening meal,The sweets of Hasty-Pudding. Come, dear bowl,Glide o'er my palate, and inspire my soul.joel barlow
