"A brilliant moonbeam was slanting through a gap in the curtains" - The BFG

"Augustus Gloop! Augustus Gloop!
The great big greedy nincompoop!
How long could be allow this beast
To gorge and guzzle, feed and feast
On everything he wanted to?
Great Scott! It simply wouldn’t do!
However long this pig might live,
We’r positive he’d never give
Even the smallest bit of fun
Or happiness to anyone.
So what we do in cases such
As this , we use the gentle  touch,
and carefully we take the brat
and turn him into something that
will give great pleasure to us all-
a doll for instance, or a ball,
or marbles or a rocking horse.
But this revolting boy, of course,
Was so utterly vile,
So greedy, foul, and infantile,
He left a most disgusting taste
Inside our mouths, and so in haste
we chose a thing that, come the may,
would take the nasty taste away.
"Come on!" we cried. "the time is ripe
To send his shooting up the pipe!
He has to go! It has to be!
And very soon, he's going to see
Inside the room to which he's gone
Some funny things are going on.
But don't, dear children, be alarmed;
Augustus Gloop will not be harmed.
Although, of course, we must admit
He will be altered quite abit.
He'll be quite change from what he's been,
Slowly, the wheels go round and round,
The cogs begin to grind and pound;
A hundred knives go slice, cream and spice;
We boil him for a minute more,
Until we're absolutely sure
That all the greed and all the gall
Is boiled away for once and all.
Then out he comes! And now! By grace!
A miracle has taken place!
 This boy, who only just before
Was loathed by men from shore to shore,
This greedy brute, this louse's ear,
Is loved by people everywhere!
For who cou ld hate or bear the gruge
Against a luscious bit of fudge"

"the rain made a noise like a sewing machine on the roof"

"At exactly that moment, his eyes and mouth began slowly to open, in a sort of wonder, and slowly he raised his head and became still, absolutely motionless, gazing at the wall opposite with this look that was more perhaps of astonishment than of woder, but quite fixed now, unmoving, and remaining thus for forty, fifty, sixty seconds."
- The Great Automatic Grammatizator

"Despite all the loveliness and the luxury, there was a whiff of danger that hung and drifted in the air like poisonous gas"
