Dancers

Famous quotes containing the word dancers:

    The dancers crowded about him
    And many a sweet thing said,
    And a young man brought him red wine
    And a young girl white bread.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    So the Platonic Year
    Whirls out new right and wrong,
    Whirls in the old instead;
    All men are dancers and their tread
    Goes to the barbarous clangour of a gong.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Proclaiming what choices there are
    For the last dancers of their kind,

    For ill women and for all slaves
    Of death,
    James Dickey (b. 1923)
