Port Vale

Famous quotes containing the words port and/or vale:

    Through the port comes the moon-shine astray!
    It tips the guard’s cutlass and silvers this nook;
    But ‘twill die in the dawning of Billy’s last day.
    A jewel-block they’ll make of me to-morrow,
    Pendant pearl from the yard-arm-end
    Like the ear-drop I gave to Bristol Molly—
    O, ‘tis me, not the sentence they’ll suspend.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    In the vale of restless mind
    I sought in mountain and in mead,
    Trusting a true love for to find.
    Unknown. Quia Amore Langueo (l. 1–3)
