Colonel Reese

Famous quotes containing the words colonel and/or reese:

    The Colonel went out sailing,
    He spoke with Turk and Jew
    With Christian and with Infidel
    For all tongues he knew.
    “O what’s a wifeless man?” said he
    And he came sailing home.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    The little Jesus came to town;
    With ox and sheep He laid Him down;
    Peace to the byre, peace to the fold,
    For that they housed Him from the cold!
    —Lizette Woodworth Reese (1856–1935)
