As when the golden sun salutes the morn,
And, having gilt the ocean with his beams,
Gallops the zodiac in his glistering coach,
And overlooks the highest-peering hills.
William Shakespeare, Titus Andronicus (c. 1584-1590), Act II, scene 1, line 5.
My Daybreak Almanac (on Flickr) provides a number of recent sunrises , none better than the one above, that conjure up the very vision seen by Shakespeare over 400 years ago. Be sure to click on the photo above to see how fully it resonates with Shakespeare’s word picture.
