There's music in the sighing of a reed; There's music in the gushing of a rill; There's music in all things, if we have ears; The earth is but the music of the spheres.
Lord Byron (1788 - 1824)
Contributed by: Zaady
There is a rapture on the lonely shore . . . By the deep sea, and music in its roar.
I am as a weed Flung from the rock, on Ocean's foam to sail Where'er the surge may sweep, the tempest's breath prevail.

And there was mounting in hot haste.
Source: Childe Harold's Pilgrimage, Canto iii. Stanza 25.
The mind can make Substance, and people planets of its own With beings brighter than have been, and give A breath to forms which can outlive all flesh
To have joy one must share it. Happiness was born a twin.
Now I shall go to sleep. Goodnight.
I'll publish right or wrong. Fools are my theme, let satire be my song.
Still from the fount of joy's delicious springs Some bitter o'er the flowers its bubbling venom flings.

Yet, Freedom! yet thy banner, torn, but flying, Streams like the thunder-storm against the wind.
