Softly the evening came. The sun from the western horizon
Like a magician extended his golden wand o’er the landscape;
Twinkling vapors arose; and sky and water and forest
Seemed all on fire at the touch, and melted and mingled together.
From “Evangeline, A Tale of Acadie” by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807 – 1882)
