baited quotes

- 8 of 8 Results vain is the net baited while the bird is looking on...
While he hears in every spring
How the birds do chirp and sing:
All boyhood's treasure-trove a hortus siccus
Of tits and knickers,
Keep thy hook always baited, for a fish
Lurks ever in the most unlikely swim.
you who baited your hook with wide-awake dreams,
and calls and letters and once a luncheon,
The last faint spark
In the self-murdered heart, the wounds of the sad uncomprehending
Farewell, Love, and all thy laws for ever:
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more;
My falcon now is sharp and passing empty,
And till she stoop she must not be full-gorged,
