Earth’s distant orb appeared
The smallest light that twinkles in the heaven;
Whilst round the chariot’s way
Innumerable systems rolled


In this interminable wilderness
Of worlds

Queen Mab Begins


              How wonderful is Death,               
              Death, and his brother Sleep!
            One, pale as yonder waning moon 

              With lips of lurid blue; 
              The other, rosy as the morn 
            When throned on ocean's wave 
                   It blushes o'er the world; 
            Yet both so passing wonderful!
