Famous quotes containing the word summer:

    Over the threshold
    Nothing like death stepped, nothing like death paused,
    Nothing like death has such hair, arms so raised.
    Why are your feet bare? Was not death to come?
    Why is he not here? What summer have you broken from?
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
