Famous quotes containing the word bower:

    When men change swords for ledgers, and desert

    I had, my Country—am I to be blamed?
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)

    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Quoth she, “I have loved thee, Little Musgrave,
    Full long and many a day;”

    Yet never a word durst I say.”

    Full daintyly it is deight;
    If thou wilt wend thither, thou Little Musgrave,
    Thou’s lig in mine armes all night.”
    —Unknown. Little Musgrave and Lady Barnard (l. 17–24)
