Famous quotes containing the word april:

    “10 April 1800—
    Blacks rebellious. Crew uneasy. Our linguist says
    their moaning is a prayer for death,
    ours and their own.
    Robert Earl Hayden (1913–1980)

    lady through whose profound and fragile lips
    the sweet small clumsy feet of April came

    into the ragged meadow of my soul.
    —E.E. (Edward Estlin)

    Shining through tears, like April suns in showers,
    That labour to o’ercome the cloud that loads ‘em.
    Thomas Otway (1652–1685)
