Famous quotes containing the word red:

    To-night the winds begin to rise
    And roar from yonder dropping day:
    The last red leaf is whirl’d away,
    The rooks are blown about the skies;

    The forest crack’d, the waters curl’d,
    The cattle huddled on the lea;
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)

    I died before bedtime came
    But my womb was bellowing
    And I felt with my bare fall
    A blazing red harsh head tear up
    And the dear floods of his hair.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    Let’s face it, I have been momentary.
    A luxury. A bright red sloop in the harbor,
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
