Famous quotes containing the word deck:

    And deck the bananas in leaves
    Plucked from the Carib trees,
    Fibrous and dangling down,
    Oozing cantankerous gum
    Out of their purple maws....
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    I sang as one
    Who on a tilting deck sings
    To keep men’s courage up, though the wake hangs
    That shall cut off their sun.
    Cecil Day Lewis (1904–1972)

    Think, when we talk of horses, that you see them
    Printing their proud hooves i’ the receiving earth;
    For ‘tis your thoughts that now must deck our kings.
