The Colonel ran ahead of me, gleeful at his ejection, and I jogged after him, trailing in his wake. I wanted to be one of those people who have streaks to maintain, who scorch the ground with their intensity. But for now, at least I knew such people, and they needed me, just like comets need tails.
More beautiful and soft than any moth
With burring furred antennae feeling its huge path
Through dusk, the air-liner with shut-off engines
Glides over suburbs and the sleeves set Trailing tall
To point the wind. Gently, broadly, she falls,
Scarcely disturbing charted currents of air.
Patience is key for getting over a breakup. That, and Trailing off your interaction after the breakup.drake
I heard the Trailing garments of the Night sweep through her marble halls.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Ah! well it is for us that God is a loving Father, who takes our very prayers and thanksgivings rather for what we mean than for what they are; just as parents smile on the Trailing weeds that their ignorant little ones bring them for flowers.
I think in Atlantic Canada, because of what happened in the decades following Confederation, there is a culture of defeat that we have to overcome. …Atlantic Canada's culture of defeat will be hard to overcome as long as Atlantic Canada is actually physically Trailing the rest of the country.stephen harper
Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting: The Soul that rises with us, our life's Star, Hath had elsewhere its setting, And cometh from afar: Not in entire forgetfulness, And not in utter nakedness, But Trailing clouds of glory do we come From God, who is our home: Heaven lies about us in our infancy!william wordsworth
Crossing the striplingThames at Bab-lock-hithe, Trailing in the cool stream thy fingers wet, 32 As the slow punt swings round.Matthew Arnold
