Famous quotes containing the word warming:

    When cats run home and light is come,
    And dew is cold upon the ground,
    And the far-off stream is dumb,
    And the whirring sail goes round,
    And the whirring sail goes round;
    Alone and warming his five wits,
    The white owl in the belfry sits.
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)

    Thine age asks ease, and since thy duties be
    To warm the world, that’s done in warming us.
    Shine here to us, and thou art everywhere;
    This bed thy center is, these walls, thy sphere.
    John Donne (1572–1631)

    Under that wide hearth
    a nest of rattlers,
    they’ll knot a hundred together,
    had wintered and were coming awake.
    The warming rock
    flushed them out early.
    Robert Morgan (b. 1944)
