Thee

Famous quotes containing the word thee:

    Over the tree-tops I float thee a song,
    Over the rising and sinking waves, over the myriad fields and the
    prairies wide,
    Over the dense-packed cities all and the teeming wharves and ways,
    I float this carol with joy, with joy to thee, O death,
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    Adrift dissolving, bound for death;
    Though lumpish thou, a lumbering one—
    A lumbering lubbard loitering slow,
    Impingers rue thee and go down,
    Sounding thy precipice below,
    Nor stir the slimy slug that sprawls
    Along thy dead indifference of walls.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    We saw Thee in Thy balmy nest,
    Young Dawn of our Eternal Day!
    We saw Thine eyes break from the East
    And chase the trembling shades away.
    We saw Thee and we blest the sight,
    We saw Thee by Thine own sweet light.
    Richard Crashaw (1613?–1649)
