Day and night, same location

And they were canopied by the blue sky,
So cloudless, clear, and purely beautiful
That God alone was to be seen in heaven.

~ George Gordon Noel Byron, Lord Byron,

The Dream. Stanza 4.

spring redbuds scene at bend of road, afternoon

Again the infant flowers of Spring
Call thee to sport on thy rainbow wing–
Spirit of Beauty! the air is bright
With the boundless flow of thy mellow light;
The woods are ready to bud and bloom,
And are weaving for Summer their quiet gloom;
The turfed brook reflects, as it flows,
The tips of the half-unopen’d rose,
And the early bird, as he carols free,
Sings to his little love, and thee. ~ Percival

Oh “darkly, deeply, beautifully blue!”
As some one somewhere sings about the sky.

Don Juan. Canto iv. Stanza 110.

Midnight brought on the dusky hour
Friendliest to sleep and silence.

~ John Milton,

Paradise Lost. Book v. Line 667
