Famous quotes containing the words vines and/or mark:
“The vines of her arms
didnt cling to the ends of his clothes,
or did she plant herself in the doorway,
hurl herself at his feet,
or utter the word Stay!
But as that fool began to go
at the time when it was dark with swarming clouds,
the slim girl blocked her lovers way
with only a rising river
made with her flood of tears.”
—Amaru (c. seventh century A.D.)
“So unrecorded did it slip away,
So blind was I to see and to foresee,
So dull to mark the budding of my tree
That would not blossom yet for many a May.
If only I could recollect it, such
A day of days! I let it come and go
As traceless as a thaw of bygone snow;
It seemed to mean so little, meant so much;
If only now I could recall that touch,
First touch of hand in handDid one but know!”
—Christina Georgina Rossetti (18301894)
