Windows

Famous quotes containing the word windows:

    All day long the machine waits: rooms,
    stairs, carpets, furniture, people
    those people who stand at the open windows like objects
    waiting to topple.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    I came on a great house in the middle of the night
    Its open lighted doorway and its windows all alight,
    And all my friends were there and made me welcome too;
    But I woke in an old ruin that the winds howled through;
    And when I pay attention I must out and walk
    Among the dogs and horses that understand my talk.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    —and then it was
    There interposed a Fly—

    With Blue—uncertain stumbling Buzz—
    Between the light—and me—
    And then the Windows failed—and then
    I could not see to see—
    Emily Dickinson (1830–1886)
