    1. Below the thunders of the upper deep,
      Far, far beneath in the abysmal sea,
      His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep
      The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee
      About his shadowy sides; above him swell
      Huge sponges of millennial growth and height;
      And far away into the sickly light,
      From many a wondrous and secret cell
      Unnumber’d and enormous polypi
      Winnow with giant arms the lumbering green.
      There hath he lain for ages, and will lie
      Battening upon huge sea-worms in his sleep,
      Until the latter fire shall heat the deep;
      Then once by man and angels to be seen,
      In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.
      — “The Kraken” by Lord Tennyson
