Famous quotes containing the words disk and/or dust:
“Unloved, that beech will gather brown,
This maple burn itself away;
Unloved, the sun-flower, shining fair,
Ray round with flames her disk of seed,
And many a rose-carnation feed
With summer spice the humming air;”
—Alfred Tennyson (18091892)
“The way a crow
Shook down on me
The dust of snow
From a hemlock tree.”
