Famous quotes containing the word window:

    And though in tinsel chain and popcorn rope
    My tree, a captive in your window bay,
    Has lost its footing on my mountain slope
    And lost the stars of heaven, may, oh, may
    The symbol star it lifts against your ceiling
    Help me accept its fate with Christmas feeling.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
