Famous quotes containing the word ships:

    Haven’t you heard, though,
    About the ships where war has found them out
    At sea, about the towns where war has come
    Through opening clouds at night with droning speed
    Further o’erhead than all but stars and angels
    And children in the ships and in the towns?
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Shuttles in the rocking loom of history,
    the dark ships move, the dark ships move,
    their bright ironical names
    like jests of kindness on a murderer’s mouth;
    Robert Earl Hayden (1913–1980)

    Your mind and you are our Sargasso Sea,
    London has swept about you this score years
    And bright ships left you this or that in fee:
    Ideas, old gossip, oddments of all things,
    Strange spars of knowledge and dimmed wares of price.
    Ezra Pound (1885–1972)
