footfall quotes - 4 of
There was such speed in her little body,
And such lightness in her footfall, ...
As a flower, as a fire, as a hushed footfall
In a long forgotten snow.
Believing every word I said,
I praised her body and her mind ...
"I weave the shoes of Sorrow:
Soundless shall be the footfall light In all men's ears of Sorrow, Sudden and light."
