Famous quotes containing the word davis:

    Night’s brittle song, silver-thin
    Shatters into a billion fragments
    Of quiet shadows
    At the blaring jazz
    Of a morning sun.
    —Frank Marshall Davis (b. 1905)

    While the light burning within may have been divine, the outer case of the lamp was assuredly cheap enough. Whitman was, from first to last, a boorish, awkward poseur.
    —Rebecca Harding Davis (1831–1910)

    Night is a curious child, wandering
    Between earth and sky, creeping
    In windows and doors, daubing
    The entire neighborhood
    With purple paint.
    —Frank Marshall Davis (b. 1905)
