Famous quotes containing the words robert and/or bly:

    But I, being man, can kiss
    And bed-spread-eagle too;
    All flesh shall come to this,
    Being less than angel is,
    Yet higher far in bliss
    As it entwines with you.

    There is a privacy I love in this snowy night.
    Driving around, I will waste more time.
