Flag Hoisted

Famous quotes containing the words flag and/or hoisted:

    —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 (1914–1965)

    Over Sir John’s hill,
    The hawk on fire hangs still;
    In a hoisted cloud, at drop of dusk, he pulls to his claws
    And gallows, up the rays of his eyes the small birds of the bay....
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
