Bell Chamber

Famous quotes containing the words bell and/or chamber:

    Its quick silver bell beating, beating
    And down the dark one ruby flare
    Pulsing out red light like an artery,
    Karl Shapiro (b. 1913)

    Beautiful glooms, soft dusks in the noon-day fire,—
    Wildwood privacies, closets of lone desire,
    Chamber from chamber parted with wavering arras of leaves,—
    Cells for the passionate pleasure of prayer to the soul that grieves,
    Pure with a sense of the passing of saints through the wood,
    Cool for the dutiful weighing of ill with good;—
    Sidney Lanier (1842–1881)
