  • …To hear the solemn curfew; by whose aid,— Weak masters though ye be,—I have bedimm’d The noontide sun, call’d forth the mutinous winds, And ’twixt the green sea and the azur’d vault Set roaring war: to the dread rattling thunder Have I given fire, and rifted Jove’s stout oak With his own bolt: the strong-bas’d promontory Have I made shake; and by the spurs pluck’d up The pine and cedar: graves at my command Have wak’d their sleepers, op’d, and let them forth By my so potent art.
