Summer evening reveries

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

Forming and breaking in the sky,
I fancy all shapes are there;
Temple, mountain, monument, spire;
Ships rigged out with sails of fire,
And blown by the evening air.

~ J.K. Hoyt, A Summer Sunset

    Thanks. 😀 Scenes like these are rare, too, we just don’t see them very often.
