Famous quotes containing the word red:

    I died before bedtime came
    But my womb was bellowing
    And I felt with my bare fall
    A blazing red harsh head tear up
    And the dear floods of his hair.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    The red of her lower lip
    kissed off by her lover at night
    can be seen at dawn,
    reflected in the eyes
    of other wives.
    Hla Stavhana (c. 50 A.D.)

    O my luve’s like a red, red rose That’s newly sprung in June;
    O my luve’s like the melodie That’s sweetly play’d in tune.
    Robert Burns (1759–1796)
