Gerard Manley Hopkins

« 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 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.
