This grand show is eternal.
It is always sunrise
the dew is never all dried at once;
a shower is forever falling;
vapor is ever rising.
eternal sunset, eternal dawn
and gloaming, on sea
and continents and islands,
each in its turn,
as the round earth rolls.
~John Muir, quoted in Muir Woods Meditations, edited by Robert Lieber
And for all this, nature is never spent;
There lives the dearest freshness deep down things;
And though the last lights off the black West went
Oh, morning, at the brown brink eastward, springs --
Because the Holy Ghost over the bent
World broods with warm breast and with ah! bright wings
Gerard Manley Hopkins in Lyra Sacra
