I Saw a Peacock

I saw a peacock with a flaming tail,
I saw a blazing comet rain down hail;
I saw a cloud begirt with ivy round,
I saw a shady oak creep on the ground.
I saw a pismire swallow up a whale,
I saw the brackish sea brimful of ale;
I saw a Venice glass sixteen yards deep,
I saw a well full of men's tears that weep.
I saw men's eyes all on a flaming fire,
I saw an house big as the moon and higher;
I saw the sun all red, even at midnight:
I saw the man that saw this dreadful sight.
