The planets in their station list'ning stood.
Drake, he's in his hammock till the great Armadas come,(Captain, art tha sleepin' there below?)Slung atween the roundshot, list'ning for the drum,And dreamin' arl the time o' Plymouth Hoe.henry newbolt
The applause of list'ning senates to command, The threats of pain and ruin to despise, To scatter plenty o'er a smiling land, And read their hist'ry in a nation's eyes.thomas gray
No more the mounting larks, while Daphne sings, Shall, list'ning, in mid-air suspend their wings.Alexander Pope
