But when eve's silent footfall steals Along the eastern sky, And one by one to earth reveals Those purer fires on high.
Deep in the shady sadness of a vale Far sunken from the healthy breath of morn, Far from the fiery noon and eve's one star, Sat gray-haired Saturn, quiet as a stone, Still as the silence round about his lair.john keats
Not Eve, whose fault was only too much love, Which made her give this present to her dear, That what she tasted he likewise might prove, Whereby his knowledge might become more clear; He never sought her weakness to reprove With those sharp words which he of God did hear; Yet men will boast of knowledge, which he took From eve's fair hand, as from a learned book.Aemilia Lanyer
I dare say you marvel sometimes at my independent way of walking through the world just as if nature had made me of your sex instead of poor eve's. Trust me, my beloved friend, the mind has no sex but what habit and education give it, and I who was thrown in infancy upon the world like a wreck upon the waters have learned, as well to struggle with the elements as any male child of Adam.frances wright
