Famous quotes containing the words amber and/or melody:
“Swimmer of noonday, lean for the perfect dive
To the dead Mothers face, whose subtile down
You had not seen take amber light alive.”
—Allen Tate (18991979)
“A poet is a nightingale, who sits in darkness and sings to cheer its own solitude with sweet sounds; his auditors are as men entranced by the melody of an unseen musician, who feel that they are moved and softened, yet know not whence or why.”
—Percy Bysshe Shelley (17921822)
