„Moby-Dick Zitat der Woche“ No.24

stamp-02„Bright shone the roofs, the domes, the spires,
And rockets blew self driven,
To hang their momentary fire
Around the vault of heaven.

„So fire with water to compare,
The ocean serves on high,
Up-spouted by a whale in air,
To express unwieldy joy.“
COWPER, ON THE QUEEN’S VISIT TO LONDON
