Quotes about lunge

Gettysburg

Though the winds be strong that lash along the steeds of the charging sea,
With lunge and urge of assaulting surge yet seeking a further goal,
God in His pleasure hath set a measure, the bound of their boast to be,
Where, pile upon pile, and mile on mile, are the cliffs of calm control.
But the Lord of Hosts who guardeth the coasts yet loveth each sieging swell,
And He who is Brother to surge and smother is Brother to cliff as well:
He giveth the word if the shore be stirred, He biddeth the sea subside,
And this is our trust, that His will is just, however He turn the tide!

As night went gray at the touch of day and the slow dawn mounted higher,
On the Federal right the third day’s fight was born in a sheet of fire:
Gun upon gun to the front was run, and each in its turn spoke forth
From fevered mouth to the waiting South the word of the watching North:
And the wraith of Death with withering breath o’er the wide arena played,
As across the large swept on the charge of the old Stonewall brigade;
But the first great wave on a sudden gave, retreating across the slain—
Gave and broke, as the rifles spoke from the long blue line of Kane!

Then silence sank on the double rank deployed on the sullen hill,
And, across the plain of the early slain, the hosts of the South were still,

Its Not My Birthday

Well the rain falls down without my help Im afraid
And my lawn gets wet though Ive withheld my consent
When this grey world crumbles like a cake
Ill be hanging from the hope
That Ill never see that recipe again
As I walk, I think about a new way to walk
As I think, Im using up the time left to think
And this train keep rolling off the track
Trying to act like something else
Trying to go where its been uninvited
Its not my birthday
Its not today
Its not my birthday, so why do you lunge out at me?
When the word comes down, never more will be around
Though Ill wish you were there, I was less than we could bear
And Im not the only dust my mother raised
So, Im rattling the bars around this drink tank
Discreetly I should pour through the keyhole or evaporate completely
But thered be no percentage, and thered be no proof
And the sound upon the roof is only water

Storm Near Travis

Clouds
glow in
garish light.

Bombers
in the mist
rise
and fade

as ponderous rain
falls
glistening
to the ground

and leaves
lunge
to winter gardens
flung.

The Words That Rhyme With Orange

IT IS not a challenge
to find a word that rhymes with orange
remember the relief of Lozenge
try the cool plunge and the wet sponge
don't attempt to scavenge
there's still the lunge

Catherine Zeta-Jones

To make it more familiar to me, I ended up treating my swordplay scenes like choreography. So it was, 'One and two and three and four and five, and turn and step and down and up and lunge.'

The Debt

Marie Antoinette
Wan countenance set
With gunge
Sits mute at toilette
And dabs with a wet
Sea sponge
Now settle the debt
False charge, dark as jet
Expunge.

Cart avidly met
The creditors fret
And lunge
Then recompense whet
Slant iron is let
To plunge!
Wan countenance set
Marie Antoinette.

Traverse

To walk over this Traverse
Needs courage all around your view;
Valour is an enemy of soldiers
But you befriend bravery like Spartacus.
One lunge is ready from you
And he shall topple doing over you.
One craves for majestic rewards
But you hunger for food, drink and clothing.
This management of your inner self
Rejects others in your wake,
For the shield of deliverance bathes you.

Artwork

Artwork is particular, general works are about,
The scrutiny of an artistic work is immense;
The world profoundly elucidates me as an artist,
The big methods employed are far beyond mere thought.

What layers of thought have enriched us and all?
The layers of justice reside in the palettes of the masters;
Demonstrations of peace are derived from the work of art,
We must lunge forward into the dark and make benefit.

Trees of Darkness

The trees of darkness are tall, wise and livid with rage,
A cheese slice is covering our eyes then the tree-cage.
Black trees are not yellow, red and orange
But the slice of fun moved like a lunge.
I plunge into leaves of Autumn, faults of time,
Carrying my food with my mouth and crime.
Trees grow forward in time, and we shall be divine
In different places, diverse views are taken to align.
Dark places will spoil the view and place,
But why do some people define this space?

Docks

Strolling along
By the teeming docks,
I watch the ships put out.
Black ships that heave and lunge
And move like mastodons
Arising from lethargic sleep.

The fathomed harbor
Calls them not nor dares
Them to a strain of action,
But outward, on and outward,
Sounding low-reverberating calls,
Shaggy in the half-lit distance,
They pass the pointed headland,
View the wide, far-lifting wilderness
And leap with cumulative speed
To test the challenge of the sea.

Plunging,
Doggedly onward plunging,
