thundering quotes

One moment, on the rapid's top, our boat
Hung poised --and then the darting river of Life
The thundering line of battle stands,
And in the air Death moans and sings:
half-way up the hill, I see the Past
Lying beneath me with its sounds and sights,--
Applause that comes thundering with such force you might think the audience merely suffers the music as an excuse for its ovations ...
Methinks King Richard and myself should meet
With no less terror than the elements
The wind,
Tempestuous clarion, with heavy cry,
Ironically, you thrill
Me not with goodness, but with thundering verse.
Cry joy that this witchlike midwife second
Bullies into rough seas you so gentle
The fishermen say that the "thundering of the pond" scares the fishes and prevents their biting.
