Famous quotes containing the words thomas and/or heywood:

    Deep with the first dead lies London’s daughter,
    Robed in the long friends,
    The grains beyond age, the dark veins of her mother,
    Secret by the unmourning water
    Of the riding Thames.
    After the first death, there is no other.
    —Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    Wake from thy nest, robin redbreast!
    Sing, birds, in every furrow,
    And from each bill let music shrill
    Give my fair Love good morrow!
    —Thomas Heywood (1575?–1650)
