Famous quotes containing the word crested:

    a flying open of doors, convergence
    of magic objects into
    feathered hands and crested heads, a prospect
    of winter verve, a buildup to abundance.
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

    Dwell on her graciousness, dwell on her smiling,
    Do not forget what flowers
    The great boar trampled down in ivy time.
    Her brow was creamy as the crested wave,
    Her sea-blue eyes were wild
    But nothing promised that is not performed.
    Robert Graves (1895–1985)
