The sun had long since in the lap Of Thetis taken out his nap, And, like a lobster boil'd, the morn From black to red began to turn.
Hudibras, Part II (1664), Canto II, line 29.
More people worship the rising than the setting sun.pompey the great
The heavenly-harness'd team Begins his golden progress in the east.william shakespeare
He fires the proud tops of the eastern pines And darts his light through every guilty hole.william shakespeare
As when the golden sun salutes the morn, And, having gilt the ocean with his beams, Gallops the zodiac in his glistering coach, And overlooks the highest-peering hills.william shakespeare
Hail, gentle Dawn! mild blushing goddess, hail! Rejoic'd I see thy purple mantle spread O'er half the skies, gems pave thy radiant way, And orient pearls from ev'ry shrub depend.william somervile
But yonder comes the powerful King of Day, Rejoicing in the East.james thomson
The east is blossoming! Yea, a rose, Vast as the heavens, soft as a kiss, Sweet as the presence of woman is, Rises and reaches, and widens and grows Large and luminous up from the sea, And out of the sea, as a blossoming tree, Richer and richer, so higher and higher, Deeper and deeper it takes its hue; Brighter and brighter it reaches through The space of heaven and the place of stars, Till all is as rich as a rose can be, And my rose-leaves fall into billows of fire.joaquin miller
And yonder fly his scattered golden arrows, And smite the hills with day.bayard taylor
See how there The cowlèd night Kneels on the Eastern sanctuary-stair.Francis Thompson
The rising sun complies with our weak sight, First gilds the clouds, then shows his globe of light At such a distance from our eyes, as though He knew what harm his hasty beams would do.Edmund Waller
The sun just touched the morning; The morning, happy thing, Supposed that he had come to dwell, And life would be all spring.Emily Dickinson
Keep your nose out the sky, keep your heart to God, And keep your face to the risin' sun.Kanye West
