The Autumn wood the aster knows, The empty nest, the wind that grieves, The sunlight breaking thro' the shade, The squirrel chattering overhead, The timid rabbits lighter tread Among the rustling leaves.
As creeping ivy clings to Wood or stone, And hides the ruin that it feeds upon, So sophistry, cleaves close to, and protects Sin's rotten trunk, concealing its defects.william cowper
As drifting logs of Wood may haply meet On ocean's waters surging to and fro, And having met, drift once again apart, So, fleeting is the intercourse of men. E'en as a traveler meeting with the shade Of some o'erhung tree, awhile reposes, Then leaves its shelter to pursue his ways, So men meet friends, then part with them for ever.
The groves were God's first temples. Ere man learned To hew the shaft, and lay the architrave, And spread the roof above them, ere he framed The lofty vault, to gather and roll back The sound of anthems; in the darkling Wood, Amidst the cool and silence, he knelt down And offered to the Mightiest solemn thanks And supplication.william cullen bryant
But two miles more and then we rest! Well, there is still an hour of day, And long the brightness of the west Sit then, awhile, here in this Wood So total is the solitude, We safely may delay.charlotte brontë
Many-maned scud-thumper, tub of male whales, maker of worn Wood, shrub- ruster, sky-mocker, rave! portly pusher of waves, wind-slave.John Hoyer Updike
No live organism can continue for long to exist sanely under conditions of absolute reality; even larks and katydids are supposed, by some, to dream. Hill House, not sane, stood by itself against its hills, holding darkness within; it had stood so for eighty years and might stand for eighty more. Within, walls continued upright, bricks met neatly, floors were firm, and doors were sensibly shut; silence lay steadily against the Wood and stone of Hill House, and whatever walked there, walked alone.shirley jackson
Two roads diverged in a Wood, and I - I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.robert frost
The stone in quarries is found to be of different and unlike qualities. In some it is soft... in others it is medium... in still others it is hard as in lava quarries. There are also numerous other kinds: for instance, in Campania , red and black tufas ; in Umbria , Picenum, and Venetia , white tufa which can be cut with a toothed saw like Wood.vitruvius
Do you think I was born in a Wood to be afraid of an owl?jonathan swift
The windflower and the violet, they perished long ago, And the brier-rose and the orchis died amid the summer glow; But on the hills the golden-rod, and the aster in the Wood, And the yellow sunflower by the brook, in autumn beauty stood, Till fell the frost from the clear cold heaven, as falls the plague on men, And the brightness of their smile was gone, from upland glade and glen.william cullen bryant
Come, seeling night, Scarf up the tender eye of pitiful day; And with thy bloody and invisible hand, Cancel and tear to pieces that great bond Which keeps me pale! Light thickens; and the crow Makes wing to the rooky Wood. Good things of day begin to droop and drowse, While night's black agents to their preys do rouse.
The three great elemental sounds in nature are the sound of rain, the sound of wind in a primeval Wood, and the sound of outer ocean on a beach.Henry Beston
Proud Maisie is in the Wood, Walking so early; Sweet Robin sits on the bush, Singing so rarely.
“If by some magic, autism had been eradicated from the face of the earth, then men would still be socializing in front of a Wood fire at the entrance to a cave.”temple grandin
If we do not add something to the knowledge of cosmic rays by our trip to the stratosphere this summer, we had better not go. We had better stay on the ground, be hewers of Wood and drawers of water.jeannette piccard
When brother Brigham and brother Joseph Young went up to see the Prophet, they found him chopping Wood; for he was a labouring man, and gained his bread by the sweat of his brow. They made themselves acquainted with him. He received them gladly, invited them to his house, and they rejoiced together in the Gospel of Christ, and their hearts were knitted together in the spirit and bond of union.wilford woodruff
One nightingale in an interfluous Wood Satiate the hungry dark with melody.Percy Bysshe Shelley

A terrible thing to be pestered with poets! But, alas, she is dumb, and the proverb holds good, She never will cry till she's out of the Wood!james russell lowell
Centres, or centre-pieces of Wood, are put by builders under an arch of stone while it is in the process of construction till the key-stone is put in. Just such is the use Satan makes of pleasures to construct evil habits upon; the pleasure lasts till the habit is fully formed; but that done, the habit may stand eternal. The pleasures are sent for fireWood, and the hell begins in this life.
