…feathery curtains, Stretching o'er the sun's bright couch.Percy Bysshe Shelley
"Wuthering" being a significant provincial adjective, descriptive of the atmospheric tumult to which its station is exposed in stormy weather. Pure, bracing ventilation they must have up there at all times, indeed: one may guess the power of the north wind blowing over the edge, by the excessive slant of a few stunted firs at the end of the house; and by a range of gaunt thorns all Stretching their limbs one way, as if craving alms of the sun.emily brontë

"A consensus [that] has been established … around the British concept of a market system Stretching from the Atlantic to the Urals, accompanied by intergovernmental co-operation in areas where collective action is more efficient, and a security policy integrated with that of the USA."
The mystic chords of memory, Stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave to every living heart and hearthstone all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.
Physics and philosophy are at most a few thousand years old, but probably have lives of thousands of millions of years Stretching away in front of them. They are only just beginning to get under way.james jeans
