Amber Clad

Famous quotes containing the words amber and/or clad:

    Swimmer of noonday, lean for the perfect dive
    To the dead Mother’s face, whose subtile down
    You had not seen take amber light alive.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    Shall the Spring dawn, and she still clad in smiles,
    And with an unscathed brow,
    Rest in the strong arms of her palm-crowned isles,
    As fair and free as now?

    We know not; in the temple of the Fates
    God has inscribed her doom;
    And, all untroubled in her faith, she waits
    The triumph or the tomb.
    Henry Timrod (1828–1867)
