Quotations about Sundays
Welcome to my page of quotations about Sunday. Our day of rest before most of us have to go back to work. A bonus Saturday. The first day of the week. The last day of the weekend. The day you can do absolutely nothing and not feel guilty about it. Here's to Sundays!

SWEET Days, God's daughters, shining o'er the world!
Bright are your feet on the far morning shore,
And, going back to heaven for evermore
Through twilight's dreamy golden gates unfurl'd,
Your footsteps in the dews of evening shine.
A radiant garland round the burning throne,
Guarded with angel wings—a heavenly zone—
Fair are ye all, dear Rays of Light Divine!
Yet fairest is she, the youngest of your name,
In her pure garment of translucent white,
And wearing on her head the halo-light
Brightening till all things near her wear the same:
For—though God loves ye all—when ye are bless'd
His Hand lies on her brow, dear Day of Rest!
~John James Piatt (1835–1917), "The Week," Poems in Sunshine and Firelight, 1863
