Not illustrated. 1806 Excerpt: ...grew, Thy kindred seasons to subdae! Rock'd by the hurricane, or cast Upon the swift wings of the blast; Thy nurse, the boist'rous north, whose hand Bestow'd the petrifying wand, Taught thee, with desolating breath To form the icy chains of death; Till with resistless fury proud, Exulting, pitiless, and loud, Thou bad'st faint Nature own thy hour, And smot'st her with a giant's pow'r!
