smoky quotes - 10 of
Why rather, sleep, liest thou in smoky cribs
Justice shines in very smoky homes, and honors the righteous; but the gold-spangled mansions where the hands are unclean she leave
Sad; so sad, those smoky-rose, smoky-mauve evenings of late Autumn, sad enough to pierce the heart.
Scatter these well-meant idioms
Into the smoky spring that fills ...
A lustreless protrusive eye
Stares from the protozoic slime ...
The winter evening settles down
With smell of steaks in passageways. Six o'clock. The burnt-out ends of smoky days.
We've looked and looked, but after all where are we?
Do we know any better where we are, ...
Autumn resumes the land, ruffles the woods
with smoky wings, entangles them.
Our knowledge is a torch of smoky pine
That lights the pathway but one step ahead Across a void of mystery and dread.
They come like sacrifices in their trim,
And to the fire-eyed maid of smoky war All hot and bleeding will we offer them.
