Caesar-like the sun
  Gathered his robes around him as he fell.
      - Alexander Smith

The sun was down,
  And all the west was paved with sullen fire.
    I cried, "Behold! the barren beach of hell
      At ebb of tide."
      - Alexander Smith, A Life Drama (sc. 4)

How fine has the day been! how bright was the sun,
  How lovely and joyful the course that he run!
    Though he rose in a mist when his race he begun,
      And there followed some droppings of rain:
        But now the fair traveller's come to the west,
          His rays are all gold, and his beauties are best;
            He paints the skies gay as he sinks to his rest,
              And foretells a bright rising again.
      - Isaac Watts, Moral Songs--A Summer Evening

Touched by a light that hath no name,
  A glory never sung,
    Aloft on sky and mountain wall
      Are God's great pictures hung.
        How changed the summits vast and old!
          No longer granite-browed,
            They melt in rosy mist; the rock
              Is softer than the cloud;
                The valley holds its breath; no leaf
                  Of all its elms is twirled;
                    The silence of eternity
                      Seems falling on the world.
      - John Greenleaf Whittier
