Atoms

Famous quotes containing the word atoms:

    Ask me no more where Jove bestows,
    When June is past, the fading rose;
    For in your beauty’s orient deep
    These flowers, as in their causes, sleep.

    Ask me no more whither do stray
    The golden atoms of the day;
    For in pure love heaven did prepare
    Those powders to enrich your hair.
    Thomas Carew (1589–1639)

    No imperfection in budded mountain,
    Valleys breathe, heaven and earth move together,
    daisies push inches of yellow air, vegetables tremble,
    green atoms shimmer in grassy mandalas,
    sheep speckle the mountainside, revolving their jaws with empty eyes,
    horses dance in the warm rain,
    Allen Ginsberg (b. 1926)

    It is the way unseen, the certain route,
    Where ever bound, yet thou art ever free;
    The path of Him, whose perfect law of love
    Bids spheres and atoms in just order move.
    Jones Very (1831–1880)
