Famous quotes containing the word phoebus:

    With sweet May dews my wings were wet,
    And Phoebus fir’d my vocal rage;
    He caught me in his silken net,
    And shut me in his golden cage.

    He loves to sit and hear me sing,
    Then, laughing, sports and plays with me;
    Then stretches out my golden wing,
    And mocks my loss of liberty.
    William Blake (1757–1827)

    Downy windows, close,
    And golden Phoebus never be beheld
    Of eyes again so royal!
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
