~View of yesterday's sunset from
my back yard!
~The death~bed of a day~~
~Phillip James Bailey
~"Come watch with me the shaft of fire that
glows in yonder west;.....
~Thomas Bailey Aldrich, Sonnet~Miracles
~"It was the cooling hour, just when the
rounded red sun sinks down behind
the azure hill, which then seems as
if the whole earth is bounded,
circling all nature,
hush'd, dim, and still.....
~"Softly the evening came. The sun from
the western horizon like a magician
extended his golden want o'er the
landscape; trinkling vapors arose;
and sky and water and forest
seemed all on fire at the touch,
and melted and mingled together."
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
