Famous quotes containing the word birds:

    Even Lust the Master of a hardned Face,
    Blushes if thou beest in the place,
    To darkness’ Curtains he retires,
    In Sympathizing Night he rowls his smoaky Fires.

    When, Goddess, thou liftst up thy wakened Head,
    Out of the Mornings purple bed,
    Thy Quire of Birds about thee play,
    And all the joyful world salutes the rising day.
    Abraham Cowley (1618–1667)
