DAWN
[ Also see Sunrise Sunset ]

Faster and more fast,
  O'er night's brim, day boils at last;
    Boils, pure gold, o'er the cloud-cup's brim.
      - Robert Browning

The quiet night, now dappling, 'gan to wane,
  Dividing darkness from the dawning main.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

'Tis beautiful, when first the dewy light
  Breaks on the earth! while yet the scented air
    Is breathing the cool freshness of the night
      And the bright clouds a tint of crimson wear.
      - Elizabeth Margaret Chandler

The sun had not risen, but the vault of heaven was rich with the winning, softness that "brings and shuts the day," while the whole air was filled with the carols of birds, the hymns of the feathered tribe.
      - James Fenimore Cooper

Not knowing when the dawn will come I open every door.
      - Emily Dickinson

See! the dapple gray coursers of the morn
  Beat up the light with their bright silver hoofs,
    And chase it through the sky!
      - John Marston

There is no solemnity so deep, to a right-thinking creature, as that of dawn.
      - John Ruskin

Look, the gentle day,
  Before the wheels of Phoebus, round about
    Dapples the drowsy east with spots of gray.
      - William Shakespeare

Look, the morn, in russet mantle clad,
  Walks o'er the dew of yon high eastern hill.
      - William Shakespeare

Night's swift dragons cut the clouds full fast,
  And yonder shines Aurora's harbinger;
    At whose approach, ghosts wand'ring here and there,
      Troop home to churchyards.
      - William Shakespeare

The eastern gate, all fiery red,
  Opening on Neptune, with fair blessed beams,
    Turns into yellow gold his salt-green streams.
      - William Shakespeare

The gray-eyed morn smiles on the frowning night,
  Checkering the eastern clouds with streaks of light.
      - William Shakespeare

The morning steals upon the night,
  Melting the darkness.
      - William Shakespeare

Yon grey lines
  That fret the clouds are messengers of day.
      - William Shakespeare

Color, in the outward world, answers to feeling in man; shape, to thought; motion, to will. The dawn of day is the nearest outward likeness of an act of creation; and it is, therefore, also the closest type in nature for that in us which most approaches to creation--the realization of an idea by an act of the will.
      - John Sterling
