Famous quotes containing the word brook:

    deep in the manhood his childhood
    so swiftly led to, a small brook rock-leaping
    into the rapt, imperious, seagoing river.
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923, Anglo–U.S. poet. “The Son.”

    The only house
    Beyond where they were was a shattered seedpod.
    And below roared a brook hidden in trees,
    The sound of which was silence for the place.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    I never drank of Aganippe well,
    Nor ever did in shade of Tempe sit,
    And muses scorn with vulgar brains to dwell;
    Poor layman I, for sacred rites unfit.
    Some do I hear of poets’ fury tell,
    But, God wot, wot not what they mean by it;
    And this I swear by blackest brook of hell,
    I am no pickpurse of another’s wit.
    Sir Philip Sidney (1554–1586)
