Famous quotes containing the word flecker:

    It was so old a ship—who knows, who knows?
    MAnd yet so beautiful, I watched in vain
    To see the mast burst open with a rose,
    And the whole deck put on its leaves again.
    —James Elroy Flecker (1884–1919)

    And some to Meccah turn to pray, and I toward thy bed, Yasmin.
    —James Elroy Flecker (1884–1915)

    When the great markets by the sea shut fast
    All that calm Sunday that goes on and on:
    When even lovers find their peace at last,
    And Earth is but a star, that once had shone.
    —James Elroy Flecker (1884–1919)
