« All quotes from this author

My aspens dear, whose airy cages quelled,
Quelled or quenched in leaves the leaping sun,
All felled, felled, are all felled;
Of a fresh and following folded rank
Not spared, not one
That dandled a sandalled
Shadow that swam or sank
On meadow and river and wind-wandering weed-winding bank.
Binsey Poplars, lines 1-8

Impaled him on her fiercest stakes—
He neutralized them all.

My apologies to the felled tree for the table's four legs.
My apologies to great questions for small answers.

The hand that signed the paper felled a city;
Five sovereign fingers taxed the breath,
Doubled the globe of dead and halved a country;
These five kings did a king to death.
