Famous quotes containing the word hoops:

    I have seen her smooth as a cheek.
    I have seen her easy,
    doing her business,
    lapping in.
    I have seen her rolling her hoops of blue.
    I have seen her tear the land off.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Since to the awe of thy imperious wit
    Our troublesome language bends, made only fit
    With her tough thick-ribbed hoops to gird about
    Thy giant fancy, which had proved too stout
    For their soft melting phrases.
