Famous quotes containing the words ireland, steam and/or locomotives:

    They call them the haunted shores, these stretches of Devonshire and Cornwall and Ireland which rear up against the westward ocean. Mists gather here, and sea fog, and eerie stories. That’s not because there are more ghosts here than in other places, mind you. It’s just that people who live hereabouts are strangely aware of them.
    Dodie Smith, and Lewis Allen. Roderick Fitzgerald (Ray Milland)

    Wisely watch for the sight
    Of the supernova burgeoning over the barn,
    Lampshine blurred in the steam of beasts, the spirit’s right
    Oasis, light incarnate.
    Richard Wilbur (b. 1921)

    The flower-fed buffaloes of the spring
    In the days of long ago,
    Ranged where the locomotives sing
    And the prairie flowers lie low:—
    Vachel Lindsay (1879–1931)
