Famous quotes containing the words crimson and/or circle:

    On her left breast
    A mole cinque-spotted, like the crimson drops
    I’ th’ bottom of a cowslip.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    They will mark the stone-battlements
    And the circle of them
    With a bright stain.
    They will cast out the dead
    A sight for Priam’s queen to lament
    And her frightened daughters.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)
