Banked Clay Oval

Famous quotes containing the words banked and/or clay:

    The rare original heartsblood goes,
    Spends on the earthen hide, in the folds and wizenings, flows

    In the gutters of the banked and staring eyes.
    Richard Wilbur (b. 1921)

    He is in the tailor mending my pantsuit.
    He is in Boston, raised up by the skyscrapers.
    He is in the bird, that shameless flyer.
    He is in the potter who makes clay into a kiss.
    Heaven replies:
    Not so! Not so!
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
