Usage examples for talon

  1. They have robbed the trade of all its mystery and romance; we hear no more of mighty magician, with hoary beard and flowing robe, with magic wand and attendant spirits; no more " weird sisters," with talon fingers and sunken eyes; not even romantic wandering gipsies- but ugly women, with unwashed hands, who can't spell. – Doesticks, What He Says by Q. K. Philander Doesticks
