Pure and undimmed, thy angel smile Is mirrored on my dreams, Like evening's sunset-girded isle Upon her shadowed streams: And o'er my thoughts thy vision floats, Like melody of spring-bird, notes; When the blue halcyon gently laves His plumage in the flashing waves.
And hie him home, at evening's close, To sweet repast and calm repose.thomas gray
I am astonished and somewhat terrified at the results of this evening's experiments – astonished at the wonderful power you have developed, and terrified at the thought that so much hideous and bad music may be put on record forever! ... I think it is the most wonderful thing that I have ever experienced, and I congratulate you with all my heart on this wonderful discovery.arthur sullivan
Hath thy heart within thee burned, At evening's calm and holy hour?
The little bee returns with evening's gloom, To join her comrades in the braided hive, Where, housed beside their mighty honey-comb, They dream their polity shall long survive.
