The last red leaf is whirled away, The rooks are blown about the skies.
Not milder is the general lot Because our spirits have forgot, In action's dizzying eddy whirled, The something that infects the world.Matthew Arnold
The passionate heart of the poet is whirled into folly and vice.Tennyson
Heart of my heart, we are one with the wind,One with the clouds that are whirled o'er the lea,One in many, O broken and blind,One as the waves are at one with the sea!Ay! when life seems scattered apart,Darkens, ends as a tale that is told,One, we are one, O heart of my heart,One, still one, while the world grows old.Alfred Noyes
In fierce March weather, white waves break tether, and whirled together at either hand. Like weeds uplifted, the tree-trunks rifted In spars are drifted, like foam or sand.algernon charles swinburne
A dancing sparkle, a doubtful star , On the waste wind whirled and driven; But it seems to sing of a wilder worth , A time discrowned of doom and birth , And the kingdom of the poor on earth Come, as it is in heaven .
