  Blending all in one long and delicious tremble like a chord.
            —Philip James Bailey
Like tints in an immortal gem.
            —Lord Byron
                Inseparably blend
Like two bright dewdrops meeting in a flower.
            —Samuel Taylor Coleridge
  Blended like the colors in the rainbow.
            —Charles Dickens
Like the soft aromatic gales
That meet the mariner, who sails
Through the Moluccas, and the seas
That wash the shores of Celebes.
            —Henry W. Longfellow
  Blended, like the sea’s phosphor lustre.
            —John Ruskin
