Famous quotes containing the word willow:

    Lay a garland on my hearse,
    Of the dismal yew;
    Maidens, willow branches bear;
    Say I died true.
    Francis Beaumont (1584-1616)

    Make me a willow cabin at your gate,
    And call upon my soul within the house;
    Write loyal cantons of contemned love,
    And sing them loud even in the dead of night;
    Halloo your name to the reverberate hills,
    And make the babbling gossip of the air
    Cry out “Olivia!” O, you should not rest
    Between the elements of air and earth
    But you should pity me.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    I am a willow of the wilderness,
    Loving the wind that bent me. All my hurts
    My garden spade can heal. A woodland walk,
    A quest of river-grapes, a mocking thrush,
    A wild-rose, or rock-loving columbine,
    Salve my worst wounds.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
