SPIRES

The tapering pyramid--whose spiky top has wounded the thick cloud.
      - Hugh Blair

Thy best type, desire of the sad heart,--the heaven-ascending spire.
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Rushing from the woods, the spires
  Seem from hence ascending fires!
      - Sir Edward Dyer

Where'er a spire points up to heaven,
  Through storm and summer air,
    Telling that all around have striven,
      Man's heart, and hope, and prayer.
      - Mrs. Felicia D. Hemans

Who taught that heaven-directed spire to rise?
      - Alexander Pope

These pointed spires, that wound the ambient sky.
      - Matthew Prior

View not this spire by measure given,
  To buildings raised by common hands;
    That fabric rises high as heaven,
      Whose basis on devotion stands.
      - Matthew Prior

The village church, among the trees,
  Where first our marriage-vows were given,
    With merry peals shall swell the breeze,
      And point with taper spire to heaven.
      - Samuel Rogers

Yon towers, whose wanton tops do buss the clouds.
      - William Shakespeare

Magnific walls, and heaven-assaulting spires.
      - Christopher Smart

Nought but the heaven-directed spire.
      - William Wordsworth

Ye swelling hills and spacious plains!
  Besprent from shore to shore with steeple towers,
    And spires whose "silent finger points to heaven."
      - William Wordsworth

How the tall temples, as to meet their gods,
  Ascend the skies!
      - Edward Young
