Famous quotes containing the word field:
“Beat! beat! drums!blow! bugles! blow!
Through the windowsthrough doorsburst like a ruthless force,
Into the solemn church, and scatter the congregation;
Into the school where the scholar is studying;
Leave not the bridegroom quietno happiness must he have now with his bride;
Nor the peaceful farmer any peace, plough his field or gathering his
So fierce you whirr and pound, you drumsso shrill you bugles blow.”
—Walt Whitman (18191892)
