Dark Alex

Famous quotes containing the words dark and/or alex:

    Love is like the wild rose-briar;
    Friendship like the holly-tree.

    But which will bloom most constantly?

    My smiling child
    Named for a noble ancestor
    Great hunter or warrior
    You will be one day.
    Which will give your papa pride
    But always I will remember you thus.
