Beds

Famous quotes containing the word beds:

    See where my Love sits in the beds of spices,
    Beset all round with camphor, myrrh, and roses,
    And interlaced with curious devices
    Which her apart from all the world incloses!
    There doth she tune her lute for her delight,
    And with sweet music makes the ground to move,
    Whilst I, poor I, do sit in heavy plight,
    Wailing alone my unrespected love;
    Bartholomew Griffin (d. 1602)

    For the baby suckles and there is a people made of milk for her to use. There are milk trees to hiss her on. There are milk beds in which to lie and dream of a warm room. There are milk fingers to fold and unfold. There are milk bottoms that are wet and caressed and put into their cotton.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Nature in darkness groans
    And men are bound to sullen contemplation in the night:
    Restless they turn on beds of sorrow; in their inmost brain
    Feeling the crushing wheels, they rise, they write the bitter words
    Of stern philosophy & knead the bread of knowledge with tears & groans.
    William Blake (1757–1827)
