Russell Returned

Famous quotes containing the words russell and/or returned:

    Dear common flower, that grow’st beside the way,
    Fringing the dusty road with harmless gold,
    First pledge of blithesome May,
    Which children pluck, and, full of pride, uphold,
    Hight-hearted buccaneers, o’erjoyed that they
    An Eldorado in the grass have found,
    Which not the rich earth’s ample round
    May match in wealth—thou art more dear to me
    Than all the prouder summer-blooms may be.
    —James Russell Lowell (1819–1891)

    Still they stood,
    A great wave from it going over them,
    As if the earth in one unlooked-for favor
    Had made them certain earth returned their love.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
