Famous quotes containing the word rosie:

    Yet fairest blossome do not slight
    That age which you may know so soon:
    The rosie Morn resignes her light,
    And milder glory to the Noon:
    And then what wonder shall you do,
    Whose dawning beauty warms us so?
    Edmund Waller (1606–1687)
