  My thoughts twine and bud about thee, as with vines, about a tree.
            —Elizabeth Barrett Browning
  Twined in Memory’s mystic hand,
Like pilgrim’s withered wreath of flowers plucked in a far-off land.
            —Lewis Carroll
Twineth, like a lover’s arm,
With sweet devotion.
            —Eliza Cook
  Twine, like pole ivy round the polished bark.
            —Richard Cumberland
  Sweet thoughts are twining in with bitter ones, as roses twine with rue.
            —James M. Morton
  Twines round it as the ivy does the ash.
            —Baron Karl F. H. von Münchausen
Like the tendrils of the vine,
Do her auburn tresses twine.
            —Ambrose Philips
