when words fade and

O radiant Dark!
O darkly fostered ray!

Evening stooped down to unloose the latchets of his sandal shoon.
– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Hyperion
… Meditating under the solemnity of the night sky…
a mysterious transaction between the
infinity of the soul and the infinity of the universe.

I often think that the night is more alive and
more richly colored than the day.
– Vincent Van Gogh
