Famous quotes containing the words witch and/or scarlet:
“The witch turned as red
as the Jap flag.
Her blood began to boil up
Her eyes began to melt.
She was done for.”
—Anne Sexton (19281974)
“Along the avenue of cypresses,
All in their scarlet cloaks and surplices
Of linen, go the chanting choristers,
The priests in gold and black, the villagers. . . .”
—D.H. (David Herbert)
