ORB quotes

- 10 of 11 Results
Thus the orb he roamed
With narrow search, and with inspection deep
So he with difficulty and labour hard
Moved on, with difficulty and labour he;
From man or angel the great Architect
Did wisely to conceal, and not divulge
His legs bestrid the ocean; his reared arm
Crested the world; his voice was propertied
You seem to me as Dian in her orb,
As chaste as is the bud ere it be blown;
Foolery, sir, does walk about the orb like the sun, it shines everywhere.
There's not the smallest orb which thou behold'st
But in his motion like an angel sings,
Romeo. Lady, by yonder blessed moon I vow,
That tips with silver all these fruit tree tops--
O western orb sailing the heaven,
Now I know what you must have meant as a month since I walked,
We do not prove the existence of the poem.
It is something seen and known in lesser poems.
