Round (Adverb)
  Round and round like a boiling potful.
            —J. M. Barrie
Round and round, like a dance of snow
In a dazzling drift.
            —J. M. Barrie
        Round and round they flew,
As when, in spring, about a chimney-top,
A cloud of twittering swallows, just returned,
Wheel round and round, and turn and wheel again,
Unwinding their swift track.
            —William Cullen Bryant
  Round and round in the same circle, like a dog in a wheel, or a horse in a mill.
            —Robert Burton
  Go round and round like Catherine wheels.
            —O. Henry
  Circles round, like the soft waving wings of noonday dreams.
            —Percy Bysshe Shelley
