Famous quotes containing the words roll, poppy and/or seed:

    There was somewhat military in his nature, not to be subdued, always manly and able, but rarely tender, as if he did not feel himself except in opposition. He wanted a fallacy to expose, a blunder to pillory, I may say required a little sense of victory, a roll of the drum, to call his powers into full exercise.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The poppy that my heart was,
    formed to bind all mortals,
    made to strike and gather hearts
    like flame upon an altar,
    fades and shrinks, a red leaf
    drenched and torn in the cold rain.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    Not one man is forgiven! East, West, North, South!
    I bite off their dingbats. Christ rots in my mouth.
    I curse the seed of my father that put me here
    for when I die there’ll be no one to say: Oh No!
    Oh dear.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
