Famous quotes containing the word windows:

    And Saints—to windows run—
    To see the little Tippler
    Leaning against the—Sun—
    Emily Dickinson (1830–1886)

    Among a hundred windows shining
    dully in the vast side
    of greater-than-palace number such-and-such
    one burns
    these several years, each night
    as if the room within were aflame.
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

    I know some lonely houses off the road
    A robber’d like the look of,—
    Wooden barred,
    And windows hanging low,
    Emily Dickinson (1830–1886)
