We go, in winter's biting wind, On many a short-lived winter day, With aching back but willing mind To dig and double dig the clay.More Ruth Pitter quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Vain vision! when the changing world each day Sees some such lordly pleasance pass away; When the mere stripling knows my symbols all Worn tokes, heaven hypothetical, Nature indifferent, and the dreams of men Figments of longing which we must condemn. Yet keep these plants, O Man! a kinder time May yet be moved by them to better rhyme, Or moved, like me, to place his pleasure low, On the firm Earth, whence Men and Blossoms grow.More Ruth Pitter quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
And I used to assemble the family to hear because I thought that they were so good that even from the point of view of enjoyment people shouldn't miss them, and I got every word of his that I could, and I could see by hard argument there was only the one way for it.More Ruth Pitter quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The lily in splendor, the vine in her grace,
The fox in the forest, all had their desire,
As then I had mine, in the place that was happy and poor.More Ruth Pitter quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To win the trophy of enchanting grace: Ranks of Carnations, to all ladies dear, Of whose sweet taste I write approval here, For these pre-eminent myself I think, As long as you don't overdue the pink.More Ruth Pitter quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
