As when the moon , refulgent lamp of night , O'er heaven 's clear azure spreads her sacred light , When not a breath disturbs the deep serene, And not a cloud o'ercasts the solemn scene; Around her throne the vivid planets roll, And stars unnumbered gild the glowing pole, O'er the dark trees a yellower verdure shed, And tip with silver every mountain's head; Then shine the vales, the rocks in prospect rise, A flood of glory bursts from all the skies.
No: by the names inscribed in History's page,Names that are England's noblest heritage,Names that shall live for yet unnumbered yearsShrined in our hearts with Cressy and Poictiers;Let wealth and commerce, laws and learning die,But leave us still our old nobility.
Since what unnumbered year Hast thou kept watch and ward And o’er the buried Land of Fear So grimly held thy guard?
The daisy, primrose, violet darkly blue; And polyanthus of unnumbered dyes.james thomson
