Sonnet of Selected First Lines that Begin with “The” (from the Complete Poetical Works of Percy Bysshe Shelley)

 The gentleness of rain was in the wind.
 The babe is at peace within the womb. 
 The billows on the beach are leaping around it.
 The Elements respect their Maker's seal.
 The fiery mountains answer each other.
 The sun makes music as of old.
 The fountains mingle with the river.
 The world's great age begins anew.
 The joy, the triumph, the delight, the madness. 
 The everlasting universe of things.
 The starlight smile of children, the sweet looks. 
 The rose that drinks the fountain dew. 
 The fierce beasts of the woods and wildernesses. 
 The flower that smiles to-day.
