Couching Thread

Famous quotes containing the word thread:

    Deep in the sun-searched growths the dragonfly
    Hangs like a blue thread loosened from the sky—
    So this winged hour is dropped to us from above.
    Oh! clasp we to our hearts, for deathless dower,
    This close-companioned inarticulate hour
    When twofold silence was the song of love.
    Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828–1882)
