Famous quotes containing the words joris and/or pierre:
“I sprang to the stirrup, and Joris and he;
I galloped, Dirck galloped, we galloped all three;
Good speed! cried the watch as the gate-bolts undrew,
Speed! echoed the wall to us galloping through.
Behind shut the postern, the lights sank to rest,
And into the midnight we galloped abreast.”
—Robert Browning (18121889)
