Famous quotes containing the words weeping, lily and/or meadow:
“What a cheerful rhyme! Clean not mean!
Been not seen! Not tiredexpired!
We must now decide about place.
We decide that place is the big weeping face
And the other abstract lace of the race.”
—Allen Tate (18991979)
“There has fallen a splendid tear
From the passion-flower at the gate.
She is coming, my dove, my dear;
She is coming, my life, my fate;
The red rose cries, She is near, she is near;
And the white rose weeps, She is late;
The larkspur listens, I hear, I hear;
And the lily whispers, I wait.”
—Alfred Tennyson (18091892)
“My aspens dear, whose airy cages quelled,
Quelled or quenched in leaves the leaping sun,
All felled, felled, are all felled;
Of a fresh and following folded rank
Not spared, not one
That dandled a sandalled
Shadow that swam or sank
On meadow and river and wind-wandering weed-winding bank.”
—Gerard Manley Hopkins (18441889)
