Famous quotes containing the words flag and/or flown:
“Here, the flag snaps in the glare and silence
Of the unbroken ice. I stand here,
The dogs bark, my beard is black, and I stare
At the North Pole. . .
And now what? Why, go back.
Turn as I please, my step is to the south.”
—Randall Jarrell (19141965)
“Ah, broken is the golden bowl! the spirit flown forever!
Let the bell toll!a saintly soul floats on the Stygian river;
And, Guy De Vere, hast thou no tear?weep now or never more!
See! on yon drear and rigid bier low lies thy love, Lenore!”
—Edgar Allan Poe (18091849)
