Famous quotes containing the words robert graves and/or graves:

    “Then let us play at queen and king
    As down the garden walks we go.”
    Robert Graves (1895–1985)

    Dwell on her graciousness, dwell on her smiling,
    Do not forget what flowers
    The great boar trampled down in ivy time.
    Her brow was creamy as the crested wave,
    Her sea-blue eyes were wild
    But nothing promised that is not performed.
    —Robert Graves (1895–1985)
