I first came across the words in a lesson where it was used as an example of discriptive writing. This was early in 1967.
Now this is a long time ago but I seem to remember that the author was one Leonard Cohen. I have failed to confirm this but the words are readily available if you type "the barrel of bricks" into a search engine.
