Famous quotes containing the word lands:

    Old men who never cheated, never doubted,
    Communicated monthly, sit and stare
    At the new suburb stretched beyond the run-way
    Where a young man lands hatless from the air.
    Sir John Betjeman (1906–1984)

    I sat upon the shore
    Fishing, with the arid plain behind me
    Shall I at least set my lands in order?
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    When I think of our lands I think of the house
    And the table that holds a platter of pears,
    Vermilion smeared over green, arranged for show.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
