Cold Harbor

Famous quotes containing the words cold and/or harbor:

    Willows last to relinquish a leaf,
    curious, patient, lion-headed, tense
    with energy, watching
    the serene cold through a curtain
    of tarnished strands.
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

    Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
    With conquering limbs astride from land to land,
    Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
    A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
    Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
    Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
    Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
    The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
    Emma Lazarus (1849–1887)
