8,918.  Between the dark and the daylight,

When the night is beginning to lower,

Comes a pause in the day’s occupations,

That is known as the Children’s Hour.  (Children & Evening)  Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, The Children’s Hour 1859

 

 

40,927.  I’ve had a perfectly wonderful evening.  But this wasn’t it.  (Insult & Evening & Party)  Groucho Marx

 

 

71,689.  And low the mists of evening lie

And lightly skims the midge.  John Betjeman 1906-1984, Henley-on-Thames 1945

 

 

71,690.  Now came still evening on, and twilight grey

Had in her sober livery all things clad.  (Evening & Twilight)  John Milton, Paradise Lost 4:598

 

71,691.  Now glowed the firmament

With living sapphires: Hesperus that led

The starry host, rode brightest till the moon

Rising in clouded majesty, at length

Apparent queen unveiled her peerless light,

And o’er the dark her silver mangle threw.  ibid.  4:604

 

71,692.  Sweet the coming on

Of grateful evening mild, then silent night

With this her solemn bird and this fair moon,

And these the gems of heaven, her starry train.  (Gems & Evening & Night)  ibid.  4:646

 

 

47,705. The curfew tolls the knell of parting day,

The lowing herd wind slowly o'er the lea,

The plowman homeward plods his weary way,

And leaves the world to darkness and to me.

 

Now fades the glimm’ring landscape on the sight,

And all the air a solemn stillness holds,

Save where the beetle wheels his droning flight,

And drowsy tinklings lull the distant folds;

 

Save that from yonder ivy-mantled tow’r

The moping owl does to the moon complain

Of such, as wand’ring near her secret bow’r,

Molest her ancient solitary reign.

 

Beneath those rugged elms, that yew-tree’s shade,

Where heaves the turf in many a mould’ring heap,

Each in his narrow cell for ever laid,

The rude forefathers of the hamlet sleep.  (Churchyard & Evening & Twilight)  Thomas Gray, Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard

 

 

71,693.  If aught of oaten stop, or pastoral song,

May hope, chaste Eve, to soothe thy modest ear,

Like thy own solemn springs,

Thy springs and dying gales,

O nymph reserv’d, while now the bright-hair’d sun

Sits in yon western tent, whose cloudy skirts,

With brede ethereal wove,

O’erhang his wavy bed:

Now air is hush’d, save where the weak-ey’d bat,

With short shrill shriek, flits by on leathern wing,

Or where the beetle winds

His small but sullen horn,

As oft he rises ’midst the twilight path,

Against the pilgrim borne in heedless hum:

Now teach me, maid compos’d,

To breathe some soften’d strain,

Whose numbers stealing thro’ thy dark’ning vale

May not unseemly with its stillness suit,

As musing slow, I hail

Thy genial lov’d return!

For when thy folding-star arising shows

His paly circlet, at his warning lamp

The fragrant Hours, and elves

Who slept in flow’rs the day,

And many a nymph who wreathes her brows with sedge,

And sheds the fresh’ning dew, and, lovelier still,

The pensive Pleasures sweet,

Prepare thy shadowy car.

Then lead, calm vot’ress, where some sheety lake

Cheers the lone heath, or some time-hallow’d pile,

Or upland fallows grey

Reflect its last cool gleam.

But when chill blust’ring winds, or driving rain,

Forbid my willing feet, be mine the hut

That from the mountain’s side

Views wilds, and swelling floods,

And hamlets brown, and dim-discover’d spires,

And hears their simple bell, and marks o'er all

Thy dewy fingers draw

The gradual dusky veil.

While Spring shall pour his show’rs, as oft he wont,

And bathe thy breathing tresses, meekest Eve;

While Summer loves to sport

Beneath thy ling’ring light;

While sallow Autumn fills thy lap with leaves;

Or Winter, yelling thro’ the troublous air,

Affrights thy shrinking train,

And rudely rends thy robes;

So long, sure-found beneath the sylvan shed,

Shall Fancy, Friendship, Science, rose-lipp’d Health,

Thy gentlest influence own,

And hymn thy fav’rite name!  William Taylor Collins, Ode to Evening

 

 

71,694.  It is a beauteous evening, calm and free;

The holy time is quiet as a nun

Breathless with adoration.  William Wordsworth

 

 

71,695.  Evening, all.  Jack Warner as Sergeant Dixon of BBC’s Dixon of Dock Green

 

 

71,696.  The shadows now so long do grow,

That brambles like tall cedars show,

Molehills seem mountains, and the ant

Appears a monstrous elephant.  (Evening & Twilight)  Charles Cotton 1630-87

 

 

71,697.  Now stir the fire, and close the shutters fast,

Let fall the curtains, wheel the sofa round,

And, while the bibbling and loud-hissing urn

Throws up a steamy column, and the cups,

That cheer but not inebriate, wait on each,

So let us welcome peaceful evening in.  William Cowper, The Task 1785

 

 

71,698.  Some enchanted evening,

You may see a stranger,

You may see a stranger,

Across a crowded room.  Oscar Hammerstein, 1949 song

 

 

71,699.  Be thou the rainbow in the storms of life.  The evening beam that smiles the clouds away, and tints tomorrow with prophetic ray.  Lord Byron, Bride of Abydos

 

 

71,700.  It is the hour when from the boughs

The nightingale's high note is heard;

It is the hour when lovers’ vows

Seem sweet in every whispered word;

And gentle winds, and waters near,

Make music to the lonely ear.

Each flower the dews have lightly wet,

And in the sky the stars are met,

And on the wave is deeper blue,

And on the leaf a browner hue,

And in the heaven that clear obscure,

So softly dark, and darkly pure.

Which follows the decline of day,

As twilight melts beneath the moon away.  (Evening & Twilight)  Lord Byron, Parisina st1
