Famous quotes containing the word bleached:

    Across the lonely beach we flit,
    One little sandpiper and I;
    And fast I gather, bit by bit,
    The scattered driftwood, bleached and dry.
    The wild waves reach their hands for it,
    The wild wind raves, the tide runs high,
    As up and down the beach we flit—
    One little sandpiper and I.
    Celia Thaxter (”Laighton”)

    blessed snow,
    comes out of the sky
    like bleached flies.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Surely I remember the hooks
    of her fingers curled on mine, though even now
    will not admit the times I did avoid this street,
    where she lived on and on like a bleached fig
    and forgot us anyhow....
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
