Now air is hushed, save where the weak-eyed bat With short shrill shriek flits by on leathern wing, Or where the beetle winds His small but sullen horn, As oft he rises midst the twilight path, Against the pilgrim borne in heedless hum.
The true picture of the past flits by. The past can be seized only as an image which flashes up at the instant when it can recognized and is never seen again.walter benjamin
Dim with the mist of years, gray flits the shade of power.lord byron
God by God flits past in thunder, till His glories turn to shades; God to God bears wondering witness how His gospel flames and fades. More was each of these, yet they were, than man their servant seemed: Dead are all of these, and man survives who made them while he dreamed.algernon charles swinburne
The mountain at a given distance In amber lies; Approached, the amber flits a little, And that's the skies!
