Famous quotes containing the word belfry:

    I cannot yet begin to understand
    Why we are proud that an ancestor knew
    The crazy Poe, who was not of our kind
    Bats in the belfry that round and round flew
    In vapors not quite wholesome for the mind.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    When cats run home and light is come,
    And dew is cold upon the ground,
    And the far-off stream is dumb,
    And the whirring sail goes round,
    And the whirring sail goes round;
    Alone and warming his five wits,
    The white owl in the belfry sits.
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)
