Famous quotes containing the word blue:

    “... Can poet’s thought
    That springs from body and in body falls
    Like this pure jet, now lost amid blue sky,
    Now bathing lily leaf and fish’s scale,
    Be mimicry?”
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    It was beginning winter,
    An in-between time,
    The landscape still partly brown:
    The bones of weeds kept swinging in the wind,
    Above the blue snow.
    Theodore Roethke (1908–1963)

    Tommy is three and when he’s bad
    his mother dances with him.
    She puts on the record,
    “Red Roses for a Blue Lady”
    and throws him across the room.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
