Trees

Famous quotes containing the word trees:

    For many are the trees of God that grow
    In Paradise, and various, yet unknown
    To us; in such abundance lies our choice
    As leaves a greater store of fruit untouched,
    Still hanging incorruptible, till men
    Grow up to their provision, and more hands
    Help to disburden Nature of her bearth.”
    John Milton (1608–1674)

    It were a blessed sight to see
    That child become a willow tree,
    His brother trees among.
    He’d be four times as tall as me,
    And live three times as long.
    Catherine Maria Fanshawe (1765–1834)

    an endless wind
    Whips at the headstones of the dead and wails
    In the trees for all who have and have not sinned.
    Anthony Hecht (b. 1923)
