That memorable day died in purple and gold, and just as the last traces of the sunset faded in the west and the star-lilies filled the sky, the full moon looked down over the rim of the valley, and the great rocks, catching the silvery glow, came forth out of the dusky shadows like very spirits.
I could digress and say that you have the ability to give magnificent gentle kisses, or that I love your tan lines or that I love the curve of your hips, the erotic beauty of you holding yourself (or two magnificent parts of yourself) in the faded Glow of the night's light. but hey, that would be going into sexual details...mark sanford
There are two kinds of light — the Glow that illumines, and the glare that obscures.
The windflower and the violet, they perished long ago, And the brier-rose and the orchis died amid the summer Glow; But on the hills the golden-rod, and the aster in the wood, And the yellow sunflower by the brook, in autumn beauty stood, Till fell the frost from the clear cold heaven, as falls the plague on men, And the brightness of their smile was gone, from upland glade and glen.william cullen bryant
Her eyes, the Glow-worm lend thee, The shooting stars attend thee; And the elves also, Whose little eyes Glow, Like the sparks of fire, befriend thee.Robert Herrick
A wind sways in the pines, And below Not a breath of wild air; Still as the mosses that Glow On the flooring and over the lines Of the roots here and there. The pine tree drops its dead; Theyare quiet, as under the sea. Overhead, overhead Rushes life in a race, As the clouds the clouds chase; And we go, And we drop like the fruits of the tree, Even we, Even so.George Meredith
What is charm, it is not a moral quality.. it is not intellectual for no man by much thinking is able to add a grain of it to his personality. One either has it or has it not, it cannot be acquired or even cultivated. It is not physical even.. it seems to be added to the human personality, an aura, a Glow, the gold dust upon a butterfly's wing, the bloom upon a peach.flora thompson
There are two kinds of light — the Glow that illumines, and the glare that obscures.james thurber
Found this picture of Angie laughing in a restaurant with some other people, everybody pretty but beyond that it was like they had this Glow, not really in the photograph but it was there anyway, something you feel. Look, she said to Lanette, showing her the picture, they got this Glow. It’s called money, Lanette said.william ford gibson
Behind the steps that Misery treads Approaching Comfort view: The hues of bliss more brightly Glow Chastised by sabler tints of woe, And blended form, with artful strife, The strength and harmony of life.thomas gray
Lord of all being, thronèd afar, Thy glory flames from sun and star; Center and soul of every sphere, Yet to each loving heart how near! Sun of our life, Thy quickening ray, Sheds on our path the Glow of day; Star of our hope, Thy softened light Cheers the long watches of the night.
Speak not too well of one who scarce will know Himself transfigured in its roseate Glow; Say kindly of him what is, chiefly, true, Remembering always he belongs to you; Deal with him as a truant, if you will, But claim him, keep him, call him brother still!
Merle's all-night illumination prolonged itself into an inescapable Glow that began to keep him awake.thomas pynchon
Sweet the rose which lives in Heaven, Although on earth ’tis planted, Where its honours blow, While by earth’s slaves the leaves are riven Which die the while they Glow.Percy Bysshe Shelley
From the mingled strength of shade and light A new creation rises to my sight, Such heav'nly figures from his pencil flow, So warm with light his blended colors Glow. * * * * * * The glowing portraits, fresh from life, that bring Home to our hearts the truth from which they spring.
A life illuminated by a strangely radiant death, which continued to Glow in his minds eye.
The old city, which is partially encircled by a crenelated wall, is notable for its town planning avenues; divided the city into neat rectangles, each of which specializes in certain crafts. At dusk, the sunset shaded buildings have a magical Glow.
Her eyes the Glow-worm lend thee, The shooting stars attend thee; And the elves also, Whose little eyes Glow Like the sparks of fire, befriend thee.Robert Herrick
Experience is always seeking for special literary forms in which its various aspects can find their most adequate expression; and there are many of these aspects which are best rendered in a fragmentary fashion, because they are themselves fragments of experience, gleams and flashes of light, rather than the steady Glow of a larger illumination.
Thou Royal River, born of sun and shower In chambers purple with the Alpine Glow, Wrapped in the spotless ermine of the snow And rocked by tempests!Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
There's nothing bright above, below, From flowers that bloom, to stars that Glow, But in its light my soul can see Some feature of Thy Deity.
