  • Portents and prodigies their souls amaz’d; But most, when this stupendous pile was rais’d: Then flaming meteors, hung in air, were seen, And thunders rattled thro’ a sky serene.
  • Chaf’d by the speed, it fir’d; and, as it flew, A trail of following flames ascending drew: Kindling they mount, and mark the shiny way; Across the skies as falling meteors play, And vanish into wind, or in a blaze decay.
