THE SUNSET STOPPED ON COTTAGES
Emily Dickinson


The Sunset stopped on Cottages
Where Sunset hence must be
For treason not of His, but Life's,
Gone Westerly, Today—

The Sunset stopped on Cottages
Where Morning just begun—
What difference, after all, Thou mak'st
Thou supercilious Sun?

Although spring is here - and very welcome it is too - I love that magical time in the evening when the sky is often stunning! These three photographs were taken in the village in January, February and March 2004.

BLIND MAN’S HOLIDAY: Twilight, also called DARKLINS.
‘It’s a blind man’s holiday so you’d better light yon candle’.

SUNSET AT NIGHT - IS NATURAL
Emily Dickinson


Sunset at Night -is natural -
But Sunset on the Dawn
Reverses Nature -Master -
So Midnight's -due -at Noon.

Eclipses be -predicted -
And Science bows them in
But do one face us suddenly
Jehovah's Watch -is wrong.

SUNRISE, SUNSET
Karen McCulley


New and beautiful every morning.
Sunrise, Oh! how glorious, . . .
Sunrise, a special sign . . .
A new day has begun . . .
The rising of the Sun.
Sunset, full of splendor
And color . . . the mastery,
Artistry . . . of the Master's touch.
Sunset, a special sign . . .
Another day is done.
A free colorful spectacle
Full and marvelous to each beholder.
Gifts, . . . marvelous wondrous Gifts . .
Bestowed on all, no matter how rich,
No matter how small. Yes, our creator
Loves us all.
