Nathalia Crane Quotes

You cannot choose your battlefield,
God does that for you;
But you can plant a standard
Where a standard never flew.
(From The Colors)
— Nathalia Crane —

Great is the rose That challenges the crypt, And quotes milleniums Against the grave.

— Nathalia Crane

The sign work of the Orient it runneth up and down; The Talmud stalks from right to left, a rabbi in a gown; The Roman rolls from left to right from Maytime unto May; But the gods shake up their symbols in an absent-minded way. Their language runs to circles like the language of the eyes, Emphasised by strange dilations with little panting sighs.

— Nathalia Crane

A precious place is Paradise and none may know its worth, But Eden ever longeth for the knicknacks of the earth. The angels grow quite wistful over worldly things below; They hear the hurdy-gurdies in the Candle Makers Row. They listen for the laughter from the antics of the earth; They lower pails from heaven's walls to catch the milk-maids mirth.

— Nathalia Crane

In the darkness, who would answer for the color of a rose, Or the vestments of the May moth and the pilgrimage it goes?

— Nathalia Crane
