It dusked the quiet meadow, And the glistening grass; It dimmed the forest fountain And the clover lea; It deepened on the mountain, Darkened on the sea. VI, edited by James Hamilton, The vast space above us—so near, and yet in many respects so far beyond our reach, so familiar, and yet so strange Browning [The Morning Moon:] The stars burned out in the pale blue air, And the thin, white moon lay withering there. Brooks, The moon hung low in the sky like a yellow skull. From time to time a huge misshapen cloud stretched a long arm across and hid it.

VI, edited by James Hamilton, I wield the flail of the lashing hail, And whiten the green plains under, And then again I dissolve it in rain, And laugh as I pass in thunder What is that apparition of dazzling brightness rising softly upon the blue sky from behind those tall and massive elms?

If you saw it for the first time in your life, you would say it must be some celestial visitant. Is it light itself from heaven taking shape, and just softened and subdued to the endurance of a mortal vision? It is nothing but a cloud! He has given them beauty and made them a blessing, that they may the better represent things which charm for a time and disappoint in the end. When you are tempted to set your heart on earthly things, look up to the changing clouds and see how soon your possessions will pass away.

God has clothed the clouds of the morning and the evening with evanescent beauty, that he may awaken in our hearts a longing for the land where the glory of his presence shall be an everlasting light. Did He not wish to remind us that there is something heavenly above us, beyond the reach of our present sordid lives?

Because you can't save a cloud like you can save a leaf or a flower or a rock — clouds are now! Clouds are the carpe diem of nature. Home-bound, the drifting cloud-crafts rest Where sunset ambers all the west Stoll, "San Francisco's Theatrical Rehabilitation," The Theatre , August The offing was barred by a black bank of clouds, and the tranquil water-way leading to the uttermost ends of the earth flowed somber under an overcast sky — seemed to lead into the heart of an immense darkness.

And great cloud-continents of sunset-seas. Britton — , "Sun and Shade" Seuss, The Lorax , I can't see the stars anymore living here Let's go to the hills where the outlines are clear Never more glance crossed it In the sky-heart far, But where I had lost it Shone the evening star.

Endless and Infinite: 10 Best Sky Quotes and Pictures (My Photography)

VI, edited by James Hamilton, [W]hen the weather is steady and fair, we see in a far higher region the lovely cirrus cloud; light and waving as locks of hair, or tiny feathers of exquisite hue, the first to catch the splendour of the coming sun, the last to lose the glories of his light Those who thus live and die never have a vision of golden harvests and lovely gardens and verdant fields and lanes crowded with ferns and mosses and vocal with the songs of birds.

Hardly a single flower gladdens their sight; but even they may wistfully gaze up to the clouds which sweep over the sky, and may learn to hope and believe that there is something untainted by defilement, and for evermore beyond the reach of this world's misery and sin. Some people can never afford to travel; the grandeur of the Alps, the loveliness of the lakes, are only imaginative dreams for them; and even those who visit such fair scenes merely get a hurried glimpse, and then they are back again amidst the turmoil of human life; but the sky is always overhead, and everywhere to be seen The horizon was of a fine golden tint, changing gradually into a pure apple-green, and from that into the deep blue of the mid-heaven.

From the copper canyons of the west they steal the glowing embers of the dying sun, and scatter them in blazing climax to light camp fires in the sky. It is vain to be impatient and angry with this; resentment will never scatter the mist or disperse a cloud, whether it be in the world revealed by the sense, or by the spirit. Stars are but fireflies — I catch them in my playful hands. Someone has to do it.

Methinks it is like a weasel Or like a whale. Each moment in time has created its own unique fingerprint. The moon replies with a poem. SunWolf, professorsunwolf. Whether heralding the dawn with beacons of flame and banners of gold, or escorting the sun's descending car with armies of light and sapphire thrones; whether clothing the mountains with garments of beauty, or enriching the landscape with flying shadows; whether shading the weary from the noonday heat, refreshing the field and the garden with gentle showers, or shaking the earth with mighty thunders; whether moving in silent and solitary grandeur along the blue deep of the sky, or covering the whole heavens with black and jagged masses, torn by the tempest and hurled onward like charging hosts in the shock of battle,—glorious in the morning, grateful at noonday, prophetic of the dawn at evening, clouds lend a charm to every landscape, a diversity to every season and a lesson to every thoughtful mind.

No earthly scene could attract us long if deprived of light and shade from the changing clouds, and with our present feelings we should find it hard to be satisfied with heaven itself if it be one unvaried, cloudless noon.

We shall hear angels, we shall see the sky sparkling with diamonds. Tranquil its spirit seemed and floated slow; Even in its very motion there was rest The eye, partaking of the quickness of the flashing light, saw in its every gleam a multitude of objects which it could not see at steady noon in fifty times that period What a beautiful sunrise!
