Famous quotes containing the word limbs:

“But all its chief delight was still
On Roses thus its self to fill:
And its pure virgin Limbs to fold
In whitest sheets of Lillies cold.
Had it livd long it would have been
Lillies without, Roses within.”
—Andrew Marvell (16211678)

And drink in the two milked crags,
The merriest marrow and the dregs
Before the ladies breasts are hags
And the limbs are torn....”
