Famous quotes containing the word wooden:

    Hard labor and spare diet they had, and off wooden trenchers, but they had peace and freedom, and the wailing of the tempest in the woods sounded kindlier in their ear than the smooth voice of the prelates, at home, in England.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Whither went the lovely hoyden?
    Disappeared in blessed wife;
    Servant to a wooden cradle,
    Living in a baby’s life.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Two wooden tubs of blue hydrangeas stand at the foot of the stone steps.
    The sky is a blue gum streaked with rose. The trees are black.
    The grackles crack their throats of bone in the smooth air.
    Moisture and heat have swollen the garden into a slum of bloom.
    Pardie! Summer is like a fat beast, sleepy in mildew....
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
