Excerpt from The Poetical Works of Alexander Pope, Vol. 3 of 4: Collated With the Best Editions
Here Orpheus sings; trees moving to the sound Start from their roots, and form a shade around: Amphion there the loud creating lyre Strikes, and beholds a sudden Thebes aspire 1 Cy... thaaron's echoes answer to his call, And half the mountain rolls into a wall There might you see the lengthening spires ascend, The domes swell up, the widening arches bend, The growing towers, like exhalations, rise, And the huge columns heave into the skies.
