Famous quotes containing the words cloud and/or red:

    To go where? In that Dark—that—in that God? a
    radiance? A Lord in the Void? Like an eye in the black cloud in a
    dream? Adonoi at last, with you?
    Allen Ginsberg (b. 1926)

    look the spangles
    that sleep all the year in a dark box
    dreaming of being taken out and allowed to shine,
    the balls the chains red and gold the fluffy threads,

    put up your little arms
    and i’ll give them all to you to hold
    —E.E. (Edward Estlin)
