Famous quotes with Gladsome

  • Who made you glorious as the gates of heaven Beneath the keen full moon ? Who bade the sun Clothe you with rainbows ? Who, with living flower Of loveliest blue, spread garlands at your feet ? 'God!' let the torrents, like a shout of nations, Answer ! and let the ice-plains echo, 'God!' 'God! ' sing, ye meadow-streams, with gladsome voice! Ye pine-groves, with your soft and soul-like sounds ! And they too have a voice, yon piles of snow, And in their perilous fall shall thunder, 'God!'.
    Samuel Taylor Coleridge
