Dancers

Famous quotes containing the word dancers:

    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)

    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)
