Famous quotes containing the word ships:

    Your mind and you are our Sargasso Sea,
    London has swept about you this score years
    And bright ships left you this or that in fee:
    Ideas, old gossip, oddments of all things,
    Strange spars of knowledge and dimmed wares of price.
    Ezra Pound (1885–1972)

    I saw three ships come sailing by,
    Come sailing by, come sailing by,
    I saw three ships come sailing by,
    On Christmas Day in the morning.
    —Unknown. As I Sat on a Sunny Bank. . .

    Oxford Book of Light Verse, The. W. H. Auden, ed. (1938)

    Oh, let me midlife mourn by the shrined
    And druid herons’ vows
    The voyage to ruin I must run,
    Dawn ships clouted aground,
    Yet, though I cry with tumbledown tongue,
    Count my blessings aloud....
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
