Famous quotes containing the word calling:

    It’s May 20th and the leaves,
    green, green, wearing their masks
    and speaking, calling out their Sapphic loves,
    are here—here—here—
    calling out their death wish:
    “A Annenne, come to us.”
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Instead of calling on some scholar, I paid many a visit to particular trees, of kinds which are rare in this neighborhood, standing far away in the middle of some pasture, or in the depths of a wood or swamp, or on a hilltop.... These were the shrines I visited both summer and winter.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    For in this yellow grave of sand and sea
    A calling for colour calls with the wind
    That’s grave and gay as grave and sea
    Sleeping on either hand.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
