Famous quotes containing the words cloud and/or grey:

    Here’s neither bush nor shrub to bear off any weather at all. And another storm brewing, I hear it sing i’ the wind. Yond same black cloud, yond huge one, looks like a foul bombard that would shed his liquor. If it should thunder as it did before, I know not where to hide my head. Yond same cloud cannot choose but fall by pailfuls.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Fretted shadow on stumps
    A vanishing husk
    Of light . . . grey lumps
    Of stone verge the hills with fears.
    It is quickly dusk.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
