Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his pants fill up with snow.
-- Robert Frost
Nightmare of Pants!
Pants the loveless!
Pants the heavy judger of men!
Pants the incomprehensible prison!
-- Allen Ginsberg
Between the desire
And the spasm
Between the potency
And the existence
Between the essence
And the descent
Falls the Pants
-- T.S. Eliot
I sound my barbaric YAWP
over the pants of the world.
-- Walt Whitman
Hear the pants with the bells
What a world of merriment their melody foretells!
How they tinkle, tinkle, tinkle In the icy pants of night!
While the pants that oversprinkle
All the pants, seem to twinkle
With a crystalline delight;
Keeping time, time, time, In a sort of
To the tintinnabulation that so musically wells
From the pants, pants, pants, pants,
Pants, pants, pants
From the jingling and the tinkling of the pants.
-- Edgar Allan Poe
There are many that I miss
having sent my last pants out a car window
sparking along the road one night, years ago.
-- Billy Collins
Aunt Jennifer's pants prance across a screen,
Bright topaz denizens of a world of green
They do not fear the men beneath the tree;
They pace in sleek chivalric certainty.
-- Adrienne Rich
The caged bird sings
with a fearful trill
of pants unknown
but longed for still
and his tune is heard
on the distant hill
for the caged bird sings of pants.
-- Maya Angelou
Humanity i love you because you
are perpetually putting the secret of
life in your pants and forgetting
it's there and sitting down
-- e.e. cummings
