The Setting Sun

Sunset_CCA.jpgThe setting sun! Full may ‘a gaze. Hath dwelt upon its fading rays.

With sweet, according thought sublime, In every age and every clime!

‘Tis sweet to mark thee, sinking slow, The ocean’s fabled caves below;

And when th’ obscuring night is done, To see thee rise, sweet setting sun!

from “Fugitive Poetry, 1600-1878
