Famous quotes containing the words pigeon and/or clay:
“They wait, each like a wooden decoy
or soft like a pigeon or
a sweet snug duck:
until one moves, moves that dart-beak
—Anne Sexton (19281974)
“And here the precious dust is layd;
Whose purely temperd Clay was made
So fine, that it the guest betrayd.
Else the soule grew so fast within,
It broke the outward shell of sinne,
And so was hatchd a Cherubin.”
—Thomas Carew (15891639)
