Famous quotes containing the words moon and/or bay:

    Her image was my ensign: snows melted,
    Hedges sprouted, the moon tenderly shone,
    The owls trilled with tongues of nightingale.
    Robert Graves (1895–1985)

    The seagull’s wings shall dip and pivot him,
    Shedding white rings of tumult, building high
    Over the chained bay waters Liberty—
    Then, with inviolate curve, forsake our eyes
    Hart Crane (1899–1932)
