We bloggers like a good quote, don't we?

This group is for your favourite quotations, and i'm not just talking about things you read in Bartlett's. It could be an inspirational excerpt from an ancient text; a memorable line from a movie; advice an old school teacher gave that stuck with you. It can even be something you overheard at the bus stop this morning.

Add a poignant photo to accompany your quote.

If you tag the posts, perhaps we can build up a searchable bank of our own favourite words, phrases, quotations...

You get the picture. Join the group and get quoting. You can quote me on that.

The furthest city light

(viewed 2298 times)
Bookmark and Share
*I have been one acquainted with the night.
I have walked out in rain -- and back in rain.
I have outwalked the furthest city light.

I have looked down the saddest city lane.
I have passed by the watchman on his beat
And dropped my eyes, unwilling to explain.

I have stood still and stopped the sound of feet
When far away an interrupted cry
Came over houses from another street,

But not to call me back or say good-bye;
And further still at an unearthly height,
O luminary clock against the sky
Proclaimed the time was neither wrong nor right.

I have been one acquainted with the night.*

Robert Frost

This one means something to me x2

I <3 Robert Frost. You know of course that he was a friend of our own Edward Thomas don't you?

Of course you do! I've posted that fact at least twice before on moblog. Maybe I should post up some Edward Thomas, perhaps for Remembrance Sunday... : )

This poem suits my mood at the moment.

Glad you approve of the poem. Yes, indeed it has been noted that you know more about Robert Frost than his own wife did and yes both he and Edward Thomas frequently explored themes of rural life..... : P
