A sunset is one of those moments in life that is often overlooked. Despite their regularity, each and every sunset is unique and anything but common. Perhaps that is what spurs us to grab our cameras and start shooting like today's sunset is the first one we have ever seen. In a way, it is.

 

 

The golden sea its mirror spreads,

Beneath the golden skies,

And but a narrow strip between,

Of land and shadow lies.

And midway of the radiant flood,

Hangs silently the boat,

The sea is but another sky,

The sky a sea as well,

And which is earth and which is heaven,

The eye can scarcely tell.

A sunset,

is an official seal,

that seals up the night,

And wakes up with

a start thousands of eyes,

hung in the night sky.

This is the land the sunset washes,

These are the banks of the Yellow Sea;

Where it rose, or whither it rushes,

These are the western mystery!

Night after night her purple traffic

Strews the landing with opal bales;

Merchantmen poise upon horizons,

Dip, and vanish with fairy sails.
