Famous quotes containing the words finch and/or rosy:

    No more shall the war cry sever,
    Or the winding rivers be red:
    They banish our anger forever
    When they laurel the graves of our dead!
    Under the sod and the dew,
    Waiting the Judgment Day:—
    Love and tears for the Blue;
    Tears and love for the Gray.
    —Francis Miles Finch (1827–1907)

    Thou art not fair, for all thy red and white,
    For all those rosy ornaments in thee.
    Thou art not sweet, though made of mere delight
    Thomas Campion (1567–1620)
