What is pelt along?

Famous quotes containing the word pelt:

    ... in pelt of gold enduring when all else
    has let go all ornament ...
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

    I can turn from that slow embrace
    to worship mortal, the summoned
    god who has speech, who has wit
    to wreathe all words, who laughs
    wrapped in sad pelt and without hope of heaven....
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)
