Famous quotes containing the words mistress, robes and/or queen:

    Trying to avoid
    Ideas, as in this poem? But we
    Go back to them as to a wife, leaving
    The mistress we desire?
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    The archbishop is away. The church is gray.
    He has left his robes folded in camphor
    And, dressed in black, he walks
    Among fireflies.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    I know of the sleepy country, where swans fly round
    Coupled with golden chains, and sing as they fly.
    A king and a queen are wandering there, and the sound
    Has made them so happy and hopeless, so deaf and so blind
    With wisdom, they wander till all the years have gone by....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
