by Smart, Christopher than Michal of his bloom, 
 Th'Abishag of his age. 

He sung of God—the mighty source 
Of all things—the stupendous force 
 On which all strength depends; 
From Whose right arm, beneath Whose eyes, 
All period, pow'r, and enterprise 
 Commences, reigns, and ends. 

Angels—their ministry and meed, 
Which to and fro with blessings speed, 
 Or with their citherns wait; 
Where Michael with his millions bows, 
Where dwells the seraph and his spouse 
 The c...Read More

...s gore:

Glorious--more glorious is the crown
Of Him that brought salvation down
By meekness, call'd thy Son;
Thou that stupendous truth believ'd,
And now the matchless deed's achiev'd,
Determin'd, dar'd, and done....Read More

by Shelley, Percy Bysshe
Or jasper tomb or mutilated sphinx,
Dark Æthiopia in her desert hills
Conceals. Among the ruined temples there,
Stupendous columns, and wild images
Of more than man, where marble daemons watch
The Zodiac's brazen mystery, and dead men
Hang their mute thoughts on the mute walls around, 
He lingered, poring on memorials
Of the world's youth: through the long burning day
Gazed on those speechless shapes; nor, when the moon
Filled the mysterious halls with floating shades...Read More

by Pope, Alexander
Just as absurd, to mourn the tasks or pains,
The great directing Mind of All ordains.

All are but parts of one stupendous whole,
Whose body Nature is, and God the soul;
That, chang'd through all, and yet in all the same,
Great in the earth, as in th' ethereal frame,
Warms in the sun, refreshes in the breeze,
Glows in the stars, and blossoms in the trees,
Lives through all life, extends through all extent,
Spreads undivided, operates unspent,
Breathes in our soul, inf...Read More

by Bishop, Elizabeth

to evening to the beggar in the park
who, weary, without lamp or book
 prepares stupendous studies:
 the fiery event
 of every day in endless
 endless assent....Read More

...stood and took her clothes off one by one, 
And then she stretched herself upon the bed. 

Her bulk of beauty, her stupendous grace 
Challenged the lion heart in his puny dust. 
Proudly his Moment looked him in the face: 
He rose to meet it as a hero must; 

Climbed the white mountain of unravished snow, 
Planted his tiny flag upon the peak. 
The smooth drifts, scarcely breathing, lay below. 
She did not take the trouble to smile or speak. 

And afterward...Read More

by Wilcox, Ella Wheeler
Far off they see a dull dark cloud arise.
The hunter's instinct in each heart is stirred, 
Beholding there in one stupendous herd
A hundred thousand buffaloes. Oh great
Unwieldy proof of Nature's cruder state, 
Rough remnant of a prehistoric day, 
Thou, with the red man, too, must shortly pass away.

Upon those spreading plains is there not room
For man and bison, that he seals its doom? 
What pleasure lies and what seductive charm
In slaying with no ...Read More

Just as absurd, to mourn the tasks or pains 
The great directing MIND of ALL ordains. 
All are but parts of one stupendous whole, 
Whose body, Nature is, and God the soul; 
That, chang'd thro' all, and yet in all the same, 
Great in the earth, as in th' ethereal frame, 
Warms in the sun, refreshes in the breeze,

...wind in passing by 
 In murmuring tones takes up the questioning cry. 
 The old stupendous hall has but one door, 
 And in the dusk it seems that more and more 
 The walls recede in space unlimited. 
 At the far end there is a table spread 
 That in the dreary void with splendor shines; 
 For ceiling we behold but rafter lines. 
 The table is arranged for one sole guest, 
 A solitary chair doth near it rest, 
 Throne-like, 'neat...Read More

...child is a marvel, a matchless wonder.
A staggering child, a child astounding,
Dazzling, diaperless, dumbfounding,
Stupendous, miraculous, unsurpassed,
A child to stagger and flabbergast,
Bright as a button, sharp as a thorn,
And the only perfect one ever born.


Arrived this evening at half-past nine.
Everybody is doing fine.
Is it a boy, or quite the reverse?
You can call in the morning and ask the nurse....Read More

by Robinson, Mary Darby
...thunder roar'd, tremendous!
The lightning flash'd, the howling blast
Fierce, strong, and desolating, past
The Altitudes stupendous!

Rent by the wind, a fragment huge
From the steep summit bounded:
That summit, where the Peasant's breast
Found, mid the snow, a grave of rest,
By GOLFRE'S poniard wounded.

Loud shrieks, across the mountain wild,
Fill'd up the pause of thunder:
The groves of Pine the lightning past,
And swift the desolating blast
Scatter'd them wide asunder....Read More

...he Eyed Moth who is beautiful in corruption. 

Let Naharai, Joab's armour-bearer rejoice with Rock who is a bird of stupendous magnitude. 

Let Abiezer, the Anethothite, rejoice with Phrynos who is the scaled frog. 

Let Nachon rejoice with Parcas who is a serpent more innocent than others. 

Let Lapidoth with Percnos -- the Lord is the builder of the wall of CHINA -- REJOICE. 

Let Ahinoam rejoice with Prester -- The seed of the woman hath bruised the ser...Read More

...pon his Seed. 

For with diligence the whole Hebrew Alphabet may be found in a parcel of his seed. 

For this a stupendous evidence of the communicating God in externals. 

For I prophecy that they will call the days by better names. 

For the Lord's day is the first. 

For the following is the second. 

For so of the others untill the seventh. 

For the seventh day is the Sabbath according to the word of God direct for ever and ever. 

For I p...Read More

...y Bed of Stone; 
Or, in gelid caverns pent, 
Listen to the sullen moan 
Of subterranean winds;­or glut thy sight 
Where stupendous mountains rent 
Hurl their vast fragments from their dizzy height. 

At Thy approach the rifted Pine 
Shall o'er the shatter'd Rock incline, 
Whose trembling brow, with wild weeds drest, 
Frowns on the tawny EAGLE's nest; 
THERE enjoy the 'witching hour, 
And freeze in Frenzy's dire conceit, 
Or seek the Screech-owl's lone retreat, 
On the ble...Read More

...Earnest, earthless, equal, attuneable, ' vaulty, voluminous, ... stupendous
Evening strains to be tíme's vást, ' womb-of-all, home-of-all, hearse-of-all night.
Her fond yellow hornlight wound to the west, ' her wild hollow hoarlight hung to the height
Waste; her earliest stars, earl-stars, ' stárs principal, overbend us,
Fíre-féaturing heaven. For earth ' her being has unbound, her dapple is at an end, as-

...w his happier days)
The tumbling torrent, bursting wildly forth
From its thaw'd prison, sweep the shaggy cliff
Vast and Stupendous ! strength'ning as it fell,
And delving, 'mid the snow, a cavern rude!

So liv'd the HERMIT, like an hardy Tree
Plac'd on a mountain's solitary brow,
And destin'd, thro' the Seasons, to endure
Their wond'rous changes. To behold the face
Of ever-varying Nature, and to mark
In each grand lineament, the work of GOD!
And happier he, in total Solit...Read More

by Paterson, Andrew Barton
Remember, no matter how far you may roam 
That dogs, goats, and chickens, it's simply the dickens, 
Their talent stupendous for "getting back home". 
Your sins, without doubt, will aye find you out, 
And so will a scapegoat, he's bound to achieve it, 
But, die in the wilderness! Don't you believe it!...Read More

by Byron, George (Lord)
...dull impudence, the renegado intolerance, and impious cant, of the poem by the author if 'Wat Tyler,' are something so stupendous as to form the sublime of himself — containing the quintessence of his own attributes. 

So much for his poem — a word on his preface. In this preface it has pleased the magnanimous Laureate to draw the picture of a supposed 'Satanic School,' the which he doth recommend to the notice of the legislature; thereby adding to his other laurels,...Read More

...into the merit
Of this and that distinguished spirit— 
His cheeks' raised colour, soon to sink,
As long I dwell on some stupendous
And tremendous (Heaven defend us!)
Penman's latest piece of graphic.
Nay, my very wrist grows warm
With his dragging weight of arm!
E'en so, swimmingly appears,
Through one's after-supper musings,
Some lost Lady of old years,
With her beauteous vain endeavour,
And goodness unrepaid as ever;...Read More

by Whitman, Walt
I see Freedom, completely arm’d, and victorious, and very haughty, with Law on one
 and Peace on the other, 
A stupendous Trio, all issuing forth against the idea of caste; 
—What historic denouements are these we so rapidly approach? 
I see men marching and countermarching by swift millions;
I see the frontiers and boundaries of the old aristocracies broken; 
I see the landmarks of European kings removed; 
I see this day the People beginning their landmarks, (all ot...Read More
