Thomas Gray Quotes

    The Fatal Sisters

    Now the storm begins to lower,
    (Haste, the loom of Hell prepares!)
    Iron-sleet of arrowy shower
    Hurtles in the darkened air.

    Glittering lances are the loom,
    Where the dusky warp we strain,
    Weaving many a soldier's doom,
    Orkney's woe and Randver's bane.
