Famous quotes containing the word lit:
“Have no lit candles in your room,
That love lady said,
That I at midnight by the clock
May creep into your bed,
For if I saw myself creep in
I think I should drop dead.
O my dear, O my dear.”
—William Butler Yeats (18651939)
“The lamps are going out all over Europe; we shall not see them lit again in our lifetime.”
—Edward Grey, 1st Viscount Grey Of Falloden (18621933)
as if death had lit a pale light
in your flesh, your flesh
was cold to my touch, or not cold
but cool, cooling, as if the last traces
of warmth were still fading in you.”
—Denise Levertov (b. 1923)
