Famous quotes containing the word locks:

    So Lycidas sunk low, but mounted high
    Through the dear might of him that walk’d the waves,
    Where other groves and other streams along
    With nectar pure his oozy locks he laves
    And hears the unexpressive nuptial song
    In the bless’d kingdoms meek of joy and love.
    There entertain him all the saints above
    In solemn troops and sweet societies,
    That sing, and singing in their glory move,
    And wipe the tears for ever from his eyes.
    John Milton (1608–1674)

    When the rose reigns, and locks with ointments shine,
    Let rigid Cato read these lines of mine.
    Robert Herrick (1591–1674)

    He’s made a harp of her breast-bane,
    Whose sound wad melt a heart of stane.

    He’s ta’en three locks o’ her yellow hair,
    And wi’ them strung his harp sae rare.
    Unknown. Binnorie; or, The Two Sisters (l. 41–44)
