When the lark her song is singing,
To wander at will through the grassy lawn
Where fresh flowers around are springing.
'Tis sweet at that solemn hour to go
O'er the rocky slope, all alone,
Where the scattering streamlets freely flow...
'Tis well to inhale the earthly gale,
As it sweeps the green hill's side...
Or to look on the wood in its leafy pride,
In the glen or on the grove, the dawn is fair,—
Morning is beautiful every where!

How beautiful, buoyant, and glad is morning! The first sunshine on the leaves: the first wind, laden with the first breath of the flowers—that deep sigh with which they seem to waken from sleep; the first dew, untouched even by the light foot of the early hare; the first chirping of the rousing birds, as if eager to begin song and flight; all is redolent of the strength given by rest, and the joy of conscious life. ~Letitia Elizabeth Landon, "Rebecca," The Book of Beauty: Comprising a Collection of Tales, Poems, &c., 1833

He would certainly have started earlier, but he wanted to avoid the moon, whom he could no more marry to the sun than he could their respective children to each other,—namely, night-thoughts and morning-thoughts. For when the morning-clouds envelop man in their dew, when the loving birds dart noisily through the gleaming mist, when the sun looms forth out of the hazy glow, then does man, quickened in spirit, press his foot more deeply into the earth, and cling with new ivy-twigs of life more firmly to his planet. ~Jean Paul Friedrich Richter, Hesperus, or Forty-Five Dog-Post-Days: A Biography, translated from German by Charles T. Brooks, 1865


"Life is too short," she panicked, "I want more." He nodded slowly, "Wake up earlier." ~Dr. SunWolf, professorsunwolf.com

Rise from the chambers of the east, and bring

Experience has decided that the early morning air is much more inspiring and vigorous than the evening. What is the law? Is not the atmosphere, like all other substances and tissues, spoiled of its energy by the action of light and heat? Does it not, like the vegetable and animal kingdom, require rest? After a night's rest it is recruited and young again. ~John Pulsford, Quiet Hours, 1859

Rises from the slumbrous mass.

No human being believes that any other human being has a right to be in bed when he himself is up. ~Robert Lynd


The eye of the poet still loves to view
The earth in the light of morn;
When each object comes in its happiest hue,
When all looks pure, and unstain'd, and new...
Ere the air's first freshness is worn away...
Ere the sultry sun, in the glare of his pride
Hath dash'd all the dewy drops aside...
Ere man moves forth with his thoughts of care,
With his wearied step, and his selfish air,
And his ominous looks to cloud the scene,
Where brightness and beauty alone have been.
~Thomas Furlong, "Morning Meditations"


Early morning cheerfulness can be extremely obnoxious. ~William Feather


Most people do not consider dawn to be an attractive experience — unless they are still up. ~Ellen Goodman


I used to love night best but the older I get the more treasures and hope and joy I find in mornings. ~Terri Guillemets
