Famous quotes containing the word grains:

    Little drops of water,
    Little grains of sand,
    Make the mighty ocean
    And the beauteous land.
    Julia A. Fletcher Carney (1823–1908)

    Deep with the first dead lies London’s daughter,
    Robed in the long friends,
    The grains beyond age, the dark veins of her mother,
    Secret by the unmourning water
    Of the riding Thames.
    After the first death, there is no other.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    Listen. The minstrels sing
    In the departed villages. The nightingale,
    Dust in the buried wood, flies on the grains of her wings
    And spells on the winds of the dead his winter’s tale.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
