Poem by Ebenezer Elliott
SARAH and William Adams! here we stood, Roofed by the cloud, which cast his frown between Wardsend and Loxley’s moorlands. From the wood Of one-starred Grenno, like a sea unseen, The wind swept o’er us, seeming, in his might, To shake the steadfast rocks; while, rushing keen Beyond the edge of darkness, stormy light, As from a league-wide trumpet, on the scene A cataract of glory poured; and, bright In gloom, the hill-tops islanded the night Of billowy shade around us. Vale and hill, Forest and cloud, were restless as a fight; They seemed as they would nevermore be still; While, anchored over all, the high-poised kite Saw the foamed rivers dash their blue with white.
