[ Also see Aurora Clouds Evening Light Morning Nature Night Sky Stars Sun Sunrise Sunset ]

Her feet along the dewy hills
  Are lighter than blown thistledown;
    She bears the glamour of one star
      Upon her violet crown.
      - Clinton Scollard, Dusk

Then the nun-like twilight came, violent vestured and still,
  And the night's first star outshone afar on the eve of Bunker Hill.
      - Clinton Scollard,
        On the Eve of Bunker Hill

Ah, County Guy, the hour is nigh,
  The sun has left the lea,
    The orange flower perfumes the bower,
      The breeze is on the sea.
      - Sir Walter Scott, Quentin Durward (ch. IV)   BUY VARYING HARE USED BOOK  

The gaudy, blabbing, and remorseful day is crept into the bosom of the sea.
      - William Shakespeare

The hour before the heavenly-harness'd team
  Begins his golden progress in the east.
      - William Shakespeare

She bids you on the wanton rushes lay you down
  And rest your gentle head upon her lap,
    And she will sing the song that pleaseth you
      And on your eyelids crown the god of sleep,
        Charming your brood with pleasing heaviness,
          Making such difference 'twixt wake and sleep
            As is the difference betwixt day and night
              The hour before the heavenly-harnessed team
                Begins his golden progress in the east.
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Fourth, Part I
         (Glendower at III, i)

The wolves have preyed, and look, the gentle day,
  Before the wheels of Phoebus, round about
    Dapples the drowsy east with spots of grey.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Much Ado About Nothing (Pedro at V, iii)

The weary sun hath made a golden set
  And by the bright tract of his fiery car
    Gives token of a goodly day to-morrow.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Richmond at V, iii)

Twilight, ascending slowly from the east,
  Entwined in duskier wreaths her braided locks
    O'er the fair front and radiant eyes of day;
      Night followed, clad with stars.
      - Percy Bysshe Shelley, Alastor

A tender sadness drops upon my soul, like the soft twilight dropping on the world.
      - Alexander Smith

Peacefully
  The quiet stars came out, one after one;
    The holy twilight fell upon the sea,
      The summer day was done.
      - Celia Leighton Thaxter

The summer's songs are hushed. Up the lone shore
  The weary waves wash sadly, and a grief
    Sounds in the wind, like farewells fond and brief:
      The cricket's chirp but makes the silence more.
      - Celia Leighton Thaxter

Now the soft hour
  Of walking comes; for him who lonely loves
    To seek the distant hills, and there converse
      With Nature, there to harmonize his heart,
        And in pathetic Song to breathe around
          The harmony of others.
      - James Thomson (1), Seasons--Summer
         (l. 1,378)

Of evening tinct,
  The purple-streaming Amethyst is thine.
      - James Thomson (1), Seasons--Summer
         (l. 150)

As thus into the quiet night the twilight lapsed away.
      - John Greenleaf Whittier

Hail, twilight! sovereign, of one peaceful hour!
      - William Wordsworth

Her eyes as stars of Twilight fair,
  Like Twilight's, too, her dusky hair,
    But all things else about her drawn
      From May-time and the cheerful Dawn.
      - William Wordsworth,
        She Was a Phantom of Delight

As pensive evening deepens into night.
      - William Wordsworth, TO -----
