Christmas Trees

Famous quotes containing the words christmas and/or trees:

    “End of tomorrow.
    Don’t try to start the car or look deeper
    Into the eternal wimpling of the sky: luster
    On luster, transparency floated onto the topmost layer
    Until the whole thing overflows like a silver
    Wedding cake or Christmas tree, in a cascade of tears.”
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    In some of those dense fir and spruce woods there is hardly room for the smoke to go up. The trees are a standing night, and every fir and spruce which you fell is a plume plucked from night’s raven wing.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
