AURORA
[ Also see Clouds Day Light Morning Sky Sunrise Twilight ]

Aurora had but newly chased the night,
  And purpled o'er the sky with blushing light.
      - John Dryden, Palamon and Arcite
         (bk. I, l. 186)

But when Aurora, daughter of the dawn,
  With rosy lustre purpled o'er the lawn.
      - Homer ("Smyrns of Chios"), The Odyssey
         (bk. III, l. 621), (Pope's translation)

Night's son was driving
  His golden-haired horses up;
    Over the eastern firths
      High flashed their manes.
      - Charles Kingsley, The Longbeards' Saga

Zephyr, with Aurora playing
  As he met her once a-Maying.
      - John Milton, L'Allegro (l. 19)

My fairy lord, this must be done with haste,
  For 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; damned spirit all,
          That in crossways and floods have burial,
            Already to their wormy beds are gone.
      - William Shakespeare,
        A Midsummer Night's Dream
         (Puck at III, ii)

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)

At last, the golden orientall gate
  Of greatest heaven gan to open fayre,
    And Phoebus, fresh as brydegrome to his mate,
      Came dauncing forth, shaking his dewie hayre;
        And hurls his glistring beams through gloomy ayre.
      - Edmund Spenser, The Faerie Queene
         (bk. I, canto V, st. 2)

You cannot rob me of free nature's grace,
  You cannot shut the windows of the sky
    Through which Aurora shows her brightening face.
      - James Thomson (1), Castle of Indolence
         (canto II, st. 3)
