  Slow pacing, soon homing,
    A patriarch that strolls
      Through the tents of his children,

              Washes the roofs
                And the hillsides with clarity.
      - William Ernest Henley, Rhymes and Rhythms

The glorious lamp of heaven, the sun.

        Give out their sweets to meet thee in the skies.

        Ossian--Cathon--Ossian's Address to the Sun
