91,874.  How blind are men to twilight’s mystic things!  Wilfred Owen, The Little Mermaid

 

 

91,875.  As only New Yorkers know, if you can get through the twilight, you’ll live through the night.  (Twilight & New York & Night)  Dorothy Parker

 

 

91,880.  Dim eclipse, disastrous twilight.  John Milton, Paradise Lost I:597

 

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

Had in her sober livery all things clad.  (Evening & Twilight)  ibid.  IV:598

 

91,881.  From that high mount of God whence light and shade

Spring both, the face of brightest heaven had changed

To grateful twilight.  ibid.  V:643

 

 

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

 

 

71,696.  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

 

 

71,700.  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

 

 

91,877.  Twas twilight, and the sunless day went down

Over the waste of waters, like a veil,

Which, if withdrawn, would but disclose the frown

Of one whose hate is mask’d but to assail.  Lord Byron, Don Juan

 

 

71,701.  The lights begin to twinkle from the rocks:

The long day wanes: the slow moon climbs: the deep

Moans round with many voices.  (Evening & Twilight)  Alfred Lord Tennyson, Ulysses l54

 

 

91,876.  The sunbeams dropped

Their gold, and, passing in porch and niche,

Softened to shadows, silvery, pale, and dun,

As if the very Day paused and grew Eve.  Edwin Arnold, Light of Asia II:466

 

 

91,878.  Twilight, ascending slowly from the east,

Entwined in duskier wreaths her braided locks

O’er the fair front and radiant eyes of day,

Night followed, clad with stars.  Percy Bysshe Shelley, Alastor, or The Spirit of Solitude 1816

 

 

91,879.  The twilight is sad and cloudy,

The wind blows wild and free,

And like the wings of sear-birds

Hash the white caps of the sea.  Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Twilight

 

 

91,882.  Twilight’s soft dews steal o’er the village-green,

With magic tints to harmonize the scene

Stilled is the hum that through the hamlet broke

When round the nuns of their ancient oak

The peasants flocked to hear the minstrel play,

And games and carols closed the busy day.  Samuel Rogers, Pleasures of Memory

 

 

91,883.  Her eyes as stars of twilight fair,

Like twilight’s too her dusky hair.  William Wordsworth, She Was a Phantom of Delight

 

 

95,206.  So we drove on toward death through the cooling twilight.  F Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

 

 

95,279.  At half-past six the sun settled down upon the levels, with the aspect of a great forge in the heavens, and presently a monstrous pumpkin-like moon arose on the other hand.  The pollard windows, tortured out of their natural shape by incessant choppings, became spiny-haired monsters as they stood up against it.  (Evening & Twilight)  Thomas Hardy, Tess of the D’Urbervilles

 

 

96,223.  The sun sank as a dark red disk from which ragged pennants of green, gold, blue and saffron trailed across the lower sky.  The glow died out of the dusty heat haze, leaving the air dead.  The dust storm passed by the south, but the threat of it made the twilight black and electric.  Then the word passed.  It was not even yet an exact word, but a curse and a warning: This is the night.  (India & Twilight)  John Masters, Nightrunners of Bengal p198 

 

 

98,518.  Soon it got dusk, a grapy dusk, a purple dusk over tangerine groves and long melon fields; the sun the color of pressed grapes, slashed with burgandy red, the fields the color of love and Spanish mysteries.  (Evening & Twilight)  Jack Kerouac, On the Road
