Famous quotes containing the words leaves and/or tea:

    Down by the salley gardens my love and I did meet;
    She passed the salley gardens with little snow-white feet.
    She bid me take love easy, as the leaves grow on the tree;
    But I, being young and foolish, with her would not agree.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Not angels, but ghosts;
    curling like pink tea cups
    on any pillow, or kicking,
    showing their innocent bottoms, wailing
    for Lucifer.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
