Famous quotes containing the word platter:

    When I think of our lands I think of the house
    And the table that holds a platter of pears,
    Vermilion smeared over green, arranged for show.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    I remember the stink of the liverwurst.
    How I was put on a platter and laid
    between the mayonnaise and the bacon.
    The rhythm of the refrigerator
    had been disturbed.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    It was the custom
    For his rage against chaos
    To abate on the way to church,
    In regulations of his spirit.
    How good life is, on the basis of propriety,
    To be followed by a platter of capon!
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
