Weeping Lily Meadow

Famous quotes containing the words weeping, lily and/or meadow:

    What a cheerful rhyme! Clean not mean!
    Been not seen! Not tired—expired!
    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 (1899–1979)

    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 (1809–1892)

    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 (1844–1889)
