Thomas Sturge Moore
Break free, my soul, good manners are thy tomb!
Moore quotes
"Shells with lip, or tooth, or bleeding gum,
Tell-tale shells, and shells that whisper 'Come',
Shells that stammer, blush, and yet are dumb "
"O let me hear!"
Then, cleaving the grass, gazelles appear
(The gentler dolphins of kindlier waves)
With sensitive heads alert of ear;
Frail crowds that a delicate hearing saves.

Moore Thomas Sturge quotes
For milkmaids and queens and gipsy-princesses
Dream and kiss blindfold or starve upon guesses.
