Definition of panoply:
Yet every now and again his thoughts strayed to the Five Sisters, and with persistent fidelity of detail his mind's eye showed him the grassy knoll so soft to the tread, where the doomed trees stood proudly and gracefully, clad just at this season all in a glorious panoply of young green,- where, as the poet whose tender word melodies he was reading might have said of the surroundings: " For moisture of sweet showers, All the grass is thick with flowers."- "God's Good Man", Marie Corelli.
Over their pitiful dust thy blast Passed in columns of whirling sand, Leapt the desert and swept the strand Of the cool and quiet sea, Gathering mighty shapes, and proud Phantoms of monstrous, wave- born cloud, And northward drove this panoply Till the sky seemed charging on the land....- "Georgian Poetry 1920-22", Various.
