Famous quotes containing the word trees:

    The trees stand in the setting sun,
    I in their freckled shade
    Regard the cavalcade of sin,
    Remorse for foolish action done,
    That pass like ghosts regardless, in
    A human image made....
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    Bright yellow, red, and orange,
    The leaves come down in hosts;
    The trees are Indian princes,
    But soon they’ll turn to ghosts;
    William Allingham (1824–1889)
