Famous quotes containing the word doon:

    They yelleden as fiendes doon in hell;
    The duckes cryden as men would them quell;
    The geese for feare flewen over the trees;
    Out of the hive came the swarm of bees.
    Geoffrey Chaucer (1340?–1400)

    Wee Willie Winkie rins through the town,
    Up stairs and doon stairs in his nicht-gown,
    Tirling at the window, crying at the lock,
    ‘Are the weans in their bed, for it’s now ten o’clock?’
    William Miller (1810–1872)
