Seite 56 - The effect is now wonderfully changed : the sound of a cannon is heard in bursts; it is the music only of thunder. But the continuation of musical sounds, forms a continuation of musical echoes, which, reverberating around the lake, are exquisitely melodious in their several gradations, and form a thousand symphonies, playing together from every part. The variety of notes is inconceivable : the ear is not equal to their innumerable combinations.
Seite 128 - ... from accumulation ; a scenery to give ideas of the breaking up of a world. Other precipices soon hid it again ; but Bassenthwaite continued to spread immediately below us, till we turned into the heart of Skiddaw, and were inclosed by its steeps.

Seite 130 - ... to describe. We stood on a pinnacle, commanding the whole dome of the sky. The prospects below, each of which had been before considered separately as a great scene, were now miniature parts of the immense landscape. To the north lay, like a map, the vast tract of low country which extends between Bassenthwaite and the Irish Channel, marked with the silver circles of the river Derwent, in its progress from the lake. Whitehaven, and its white coast, were distinctly seen; and Cockermouth seemed...
Seite 55 - The cannon's roar Bursts from the bosom of the hollow shore : The dire explosion the whole concave fills, And shakes the firm foundation of the hills. Now pausing deep, now bellowing from afar, Now rages near the elemental war : Affrighted echo opens all her cells, With...
