Elizabeth Browning

I would build a cloudy House For my thoughts to live in; When for earth too fancy-loose And too low for Heaven! Hush! I talk my dream aloud - I build it bright to see, - I build it on the moonlit cloud, To which I looked with thee.More Elizabeth Browning quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
As the moths around a taper,
As the bees around a rose,
As the gnats around a vapour,
So the spirits group and close
Round about a holy childhood, as if drinking its repose.More Elizabeth Browning quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A worthless woman! mere cold clay
As all false things are! but so fair,
She takes the breath of men away
Who gaze upon her unaware:
I would not play her larcenous tricks
To have her looks!More Elizabeth Browning quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
God only, who made us rich, can make us poor.More Elizabeth Browning quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The place is all awave with trees,
Limes, myrtles, purple-beaded,
Acacias having drunk the lees
Of the night-dew, fain headed,
And wan, grey olive-woods, which seem
The fittest foliage for a dream.More Elizabeth Browning quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
