Famous quotes containing the words ice and/or dawn:
“I also heard the whooping of the ice in the pond, my great bed-fellow in that part of Concord, as if it were restless in its bed and would fain turn over, were troubled with flatulency and bad dreams; or I was waked by the cracking of the ground by the frost, as if some one had driven a team against my door, and in the morning would find a crack in the earth a quarter of a mile long and a third of an inch wide.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“Beloved, may your sleep be sound
That have found it where you fed.
What were all the worlds alarms
To mighty Paris when he found
Sleep upon a golden bed
That first dawn in Helens arms?”
—William Butler Yeats (18651939)
