Famous quotes containing the word thomas:

    In a room with a stuffed fox and a stale fern,
    —Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    I died before bedtime came
    But my womb was bellowing
    And I felt with my bare fall
    A blazing red harsh head tear up

    And bags of blood let out their flies;

    The dry Sargasso of the tomb
    Gives up its dead to such a working sea....
    —Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
