Famous quotes containing the words herbert and/or burns:

    making what’s new
    Ill and good, old, for as we die in you,
    You die in Time, Time in Eternity.
    —Edward Herbert (1583–1648)

    An evil moon bleeds drops of death.
    The earth burns brown.
    Grass shrivels and dries to a yellowish mass.
    Earth wears a dun-colored dress
    like an old woman wooing the sun to be her lover,
    be her sweetheart and her husband bound in one.
    Margaret Abigail Walker (b. 1915)
