Citações Richard Watson Gilder
„From all the misty morning air, there comes a summer sound,
A murmur as of waters from skies, and trees, and ground. The birds they sing upon the wing, the pigeons bill and coo.“
— Richard Watson Gilder, A Midsummer Song
"A Midsummer Song", in Lyrics and Other Poems (1885).
„O white and midnight sky, O starry bath,
Wash me in thy pure, heavenly crystal flood:
Cleanse me, ye stars, from earthly soil and scath—
Let not one taint remain in spirit or blood!“
