Famous quotes containing the words chimes and/or wind:

    It was your severed image that grew sweeter,
    That floated, wing-stiff, focused in the sun
    Along uncertainty and gales of shame
    Blown out before I slept. Now you are one
    I dare not think alive: only a name
    That chimes occasionally, as a belief
    Long since embedded in the static past.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    You weep, you weep for the sun an Image.
    the wind calls hideously,
    woe for the children’s fate,
    woe for a palace rent,
    woe, woe for these who spent
    in hate.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)
