Famous quotes containing the words pond, witch and/or blackbird:
“This pond never breaks up so soon as the others in this neighborhood, on account both of its greater depth and its having no stream passing through it to melt or wear away the ice.... It indicates better than any water hereabouts the absolute progress of the season, being least affected by transient changes of temperature. A severe cold of a few days duration in March may very much retard the opening of the former ponds, while the temperature of Walden increases almost uninterruptedly.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“Ding-dong, the wicked witch is dead.”
—E.Y. Harburg (18981981)
“It was evening all afternoon.
It was snowing
And it was going to snow.
The blackbird sat
In the cedar limbs.”
—Wallace Stevens (18791955)
