Rusty Nail

Famous quotes containing the words rusty and/or nail:

    Through the hollow globe, a ring
    of frayed rusty scrapiron,
    is it the sea that shines?
    Is it a road at the world’s edge?

    Ah, but to play man number one,
    To drive the dagger in his heart,
    To lay his brain upon the board
    And pick the acrid colors out,
    To nail his thought across the door,
    Its wings spread wide to rain and snow,
    To strike his living hi and ho....
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
