Famous quotes containing the word meadow:

    My aspens dear, whose airy cages quelled,
    Quelled or quenched in leaves the leaping sun,
    All felled, felled, are all felled;
    Of a fresh and following folded rank
    Not spared, not one
    That dandled a sandalled
    Shadow that swam or sank
    On meadow and river and wind-wandering weed-winding bank.
    Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844–1889)

    The poet alone knows astronomy, chemistry, vegetation, and animation, for he does not stop at these facts, but employs them as signs. He knows why the plain, or meadow of space, was strewn with these flowers we call suns, and moons, and stars; why the great deep is adorned with animals, with men, and gods; for, in every word he speaks he rides on them as the horses of thought.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Maud Muller on a summer’s day
    Raked the meadow sweet with hay.
    John Greenleaf Whittier (1807–1892)
