Soon it will be daybreak. Soon the day will break. I can't stop it from breaking in the same way it always does, and then from lying there broken; always the same day, which comes around again like clockwork.

Ah, Father! That's words and only words! Forgive! If he'd not been run over, he'd have come home today drunk and his only shirt dirty and in rags and he'd have fallen asleep like a log, and I should have been sousing and rinsing till daybreak, washing his rags and the children's and then drying them by the window and as soon as it was daylight I should have been darning them. What's the use of talking forgiveness! I have forgiven as it is!

Nay I swear by the moon, And the night when it departs, And the daybreak when it shines Surely it (hell) is one of the gravest (misfortunes), A warning to mortals, To him among you who wishes to go forward or remain behind.
I swear by the daybreak, And the ten nights, And the even and the odd, And the night when it departs.
In the cold, shivering twilight, preceding the daybreak of civilization, the dominating emotion of man was fear.
soon realize they're out there spraying at daybreak. They're out there picking at night (under lights), and it's costing them more than they're getting out of it. That's not the type of vineyard longevity I'm looking for.
A rare experience of a moment at daybreak, when something in nature seems to reveal all consciousness, cannot be explained at noon. Yet it is part of the day's unity.

The quiet nonchalance of death --
No Daybreak -- can bestir --
The slow -- Archangel's syllables
Must awaken her!
