QuotesEdit

 
Ye marshes, how candid and simple and nothing-with-holding and free
Ye publish yourselves to the sky and offer yourselves to the sea! ~ Sidney Lanier
  • Tired with dull grief, grown old before my day,
    I sit in solitude and only hear
    Long silent laughters, murmurings of dismay,
    The lost intensities of hope and fear;
    In those old marshes yet the rifles lie.
  • Ye marshes, how candid and simple and nothing-with-holding and free
    Ye publish yourselves to the sky and offer yourselves to the sea!
