"Instead of hallow'd hill, or vocal vale, / Or stream, sweet-echoing to the tuneful tale; / Damp dens confin'd, or barren desarts spread, / Which spectres haunted, and the muses fled; / Ruins in pensive emblem seem'd to rise, / And all was dark, or wild, to Fancy's eyes."

— Savage, Richard (1697/8-1743)
