Description

The palaces of Nature, whose vast walls Have pinnacled in clouds their snowy scalps, And throned Eternity in icy halls Of cold sublimity, where forms and falls The avalanche – the thunderbolt of snow! All that expands the spirit, yet appalls, Gather around these summits, as to show How Earth may pierce to Heaven, yet leave vain man below. Lord Byron, Childe Harold's Pilgrimage, Canto III (1816), line 590
