    English and Scottish Ballads (The Poetry Bookshelf)

    He certainly must be a son of Aurora to whom the sun looms, when there are so many millions to whom it glooms rather, or who will never see it till an hour after it has risen. But it behooves us old stagers to keep our lamps trimmed and burning to the last, and not trust to the sun’s looming.
    —Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
