Thanks moss - re: http://www.themodernantiquaria[...]m/?thread=56781&message=714338 Have bunged it up here as well because it's a fair bit of writing. See also - for the Uchon rocking stone -

Petite, a Uchon montais
Dans le bois qui abrite
La pierre qui croule...

Thither, youths,
Turn your astonish'd eyes; behold yon huge
And unhewn sphere of living adamant,
Which, poised by magic, rests its central weight
On yonder pointed rock: firm as it seems,
Such is the strange and virtuous property,
It moves obsequious to the gentlest touch
Of him whose breast is pure; but to a traitor,
Tho’ ev’n a giant’s prowess nerv’d his arm,
It stands as fixt as Snowdon.

William Mason (1724–1797)
