Amy Lowell quotes- 10 of
A man must be sacrificed now and again
To provide for the next generation of men.
The dead fed you
Amid the slant stones of graveyards.
Because it is my country
And I speak to it of itself
And sing of it with my own voice
Since certainly it is mine.
Colour of lilac,
Time! Joyless emblem of the greed
Of millions, robber of the best
Which earth can give ...
I am prone before you.
And drench me in loneliness.
Underneath my stiffened gown
Is the softness of a woman bathing in a marble basin,
Not a softness anywhere about me,
Only whalebone and brocade.
I shall go
Up and down
In my gown.
Boned and stayed.
I am very like to swoon
With the weight of this brocade,
For the sun sifts through the shade.
