Famous quotes containing the word crane:

    His thoughts, delivered to me
    From the white coverlet and pillow,
    I see now, were inheritances—
    Delicate riders of the storm.
    —Hart Crane (1899–1932)

    But the star-glistered salver of infinity,
    The circle, blind crucible of endless space,
    Is sluiced by motion,—subjugated never.
    —Hart Crane (1899–1932)

    And Thee, across the harbor, silver-paced
    As though the sun took step of thee, yet left
    Some motion ever unspent in thy stride,—
    Implicitly thy freedom staying thee!
    —Hart Crane (1899–1932)
