Her cheeks so rare a white was on, No daisy makes comparison; (Who sees them is undone); For streaks of red were mingled there, Such as are on a Cath'rine pear, (The side that's next the Sun).
The Colonel ran ahead of me, gleeful at his ejection, and I jogged after him, trailing in his wake. I wanted to be one of those people who have streaks to maintain, who scorch the ground with their intensity.

Friar Lawrence alone, with a basket The gray-eyed morn smiles on the frowning night, Check’ring the eastern clouds with streaks of light; And flecked darkness like a drunkard reels From forth day’s path and Titan’s burning wheels. Now, ere the sun advance his burning eye The day to cheer and night’s dank dew to dry. I must spill this oster cage of ours With baleful weeds and precious-juiced flowers.
The grey-ey'd morn smiles on the frowning night, Chequering the eastern clouds with streaks of light.william shakespeare
"What dost thou see, lone watcher on the towerIs the day breaking? comes the wish'd-for hour?Tell us the signs, and stretch abroad thy handIf the bright morning dawns upon the land.""The stars are clear above me, scarcely oneHas dimm'd its rays in reverence to the sun;But yet I see, on the horizon's verge,Some fair, faint streaks, as if the light would surge."charles mackay
