• Aurora hail, and all the thousand dies,
    Which deck thy progress through the vaulted skies:
    The morn awakes, and wide extends her rays,
    On ev'ry leaf the gentle zephyr plays;
    Harmonious lays the feather'd race resume,
    Dart the bright eye, and shake the painted plume.

    Phillis Wheatley (2008). “Poems on Various Subjects, Religious and Moral (EasyRead Comfort Edition)”, p.46,
