Irish Harp

Famous quotes containing the words irish and/or harp:

    Concurring hands divide

    flax for damask
    that when bleached by Irish weather
    has the silvered chamois-leather
    water-tightness of a
    skin.
    Marianne Moore (1887–1972)

    Strike the concertina’s melancholy string!
    Blow the spirit-stirring harp like any thing!
    Let the piano’s martial blast
    Rouse the Echoes of the Past,
    Sir William Schwenck Gilbert (1836–1911)
