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.
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
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
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.
The rubyand amethyst eyes of anemones Glow through me, fiercer than stars.
The wrath of God burns against them, their damnation does not slumber; the pit is prepared, the fire is made ready, the furnace is now hot, ready to receive them; the flames do now rage and Glow.jonathan edwards
I will become a firefly and even in the day my Glow will be seen in spite of the sun. Let others be as butterflies who preen their wings and yet depend upon the charity of a flower for life. I will be as the firefly and my light will brighten the world.og mandino
You may choose your word like a connoisseur,And polish it up with art,But the word that sways, and stirs, and stays,Is the word that comes from the heart.You may work on your word a thousand weeks,But it will not Glow like oneThat all unsought, leaps forth white hot,When the fountains of feeling run.ella wheeler wilcox
Fain would I Raphael's godlike art rehearse, And show th' immortal labours in my verse, Where from themingled strength of shade and light A new creation rises to my sight, Such heavenly figures from his pencil flow, So warm with life his blended colours Glow. From theme to theme with secret pleasure tost, Amidst the soft variety I 'm lost: Here pleasing airs my ravish'd soul confound With circling notes and labyrinths of sound; Here domes and temples rise in distant views, And opening palaces invite my Muse.joseph addison
It had been a moving, tranquil apotheosis, immersed in the transfiguring sunset Glow of decline and decay and extinction. An old family, already grown too weary and too noble for life and action, had reached the end of its history, and its last utterances were sounds of music: a few violin notes, full of the sad insight which is ripeness for death.thomas mann
And who can boast he never felt the fires, The trembling throbbings of the young desires, When he beheld the breathing roses Glow, And the soft heavings of the living snow; The waving ringlets of the auburn hair, And all the rapturous graces of the fair! Oh! what defence, if fixt on him, he spy The languid sweetness of the stedfast eye! Ye who have felt the dear luxurious smart, When angel-charms oppress the powerless heart, In pity here relent the brow severe, And o'er Fernando's weakness drop the tear.william julius mickle
May I therefore acknowledge the tender Glow of health induced by reading, as I sat here in the morning sun, the flattering attention paid me by your gentleman of ready wreath and quick biography!Whistler
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!
The water is calm and still below, For the winds and waves are absent there, And the sands are bright as the stars that Glow In the motionless fields of upper air.
Toil on, O weary, way-worn sufferer! bear up, O crushed and sorrowing heart! thy bed of pain, thy silent heroism, thy patient Christian walk, thy resignation, and thy grief, Glow all unconsciously to thee with winning radiance, and fill the world with life's sweetest fragrance as bruised flowers with perfume do the air.
Yet, taught by time, my heart has learned to Glow for other's good, and melt at other's woe.homer
So perish all whose breast ne'er learned to Glow For other's good or melt at other's woe.Alexander Pope
Because its myriad glimmering plumes Like a great army's stir and wave; Because its golden billows blooms, The poor man's barren walks to lave: Because its sun-shaped blossoms show How souls receive the light of God, And unto earth give back that Glow I thank him for the Goldenrod.lucy larcom
Any Muscovite general puts on a great show, Like a pike cooked in saffron , all glitter and Glow.
And so, this Christmas season may our hearts with gladness Glow, as we read the blessed story that took place so long ago.
