Famous quotes containing the word rocky:

    Wachusett hides its lingering voice
    Within its rocky heart,
    And Allegheny graves its tone
    Throughout his lofty chart.
    Monadnock, on his forehead hoar,
    Doth seal the sacred trust,
    Your mountains build their monument,
    Though ye destroy their dust.
    Lydia Huntley Sigourney (1791–1865)

    These poems, people,
    lost ponies with
    Dragging saddles—
    and rocky sure-foot trails.
    Gary Snyder (b. 1930)

    It is what we imagine knowledge to be:
    dark, salt, clear, moving, utterly free,
    drawn from the cold hard mouth
    of the world, derived from the rocky breasts
    forever, flowing and drawn, and since
    our knowledge is historical, flowing, and flown.
    Elizabeth Bishop (1911–1979)
