Famous quotes containing the word hairy:

    Down came the hairy talons
    and horrible poison blade
    And none of the garden noticed
    that fizzing, hopeless fight.

    Along the garden-wall the bees
    With hairy bellies pass between
    The staminate and pistillate,
    Blest office of the epicene.
