Charged

Famous quotes containing the word charged:

    Luna presence,
    foredoomed, already dying,
    it charged the room
    with plangency

    older than human
    cries,
    Robert Earl Hayden (1913–1980)

    I am trembling:
    I am suddenly charged with their language, these six strings,
    Suddenly made to see they can declare
    Nothing but harmony, and may not move
    Without a happy stirring of the air
    That builds within this room a second room....
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    God, who gave to him the lyre,
    Of all mortals the desire,
    For all breathing men’s behoof,
    Straitly charged him, “Sit aloof;”
    Annexed a warning, poets say,
    To the bright premium,—
    Ever, when twain together play,
    Shall the harp be dumb.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
