Pride of the Morning

.

That early mist or shower which promises a fine day. The Morning is too proud to come out in her glory all at once—or the proud beauty being thwarted weeps and pouts awhile. Keble uses the phrase in a different sense when he says:—

Pride of the dewy Morning,

The swain’s experienced eye

From thee takes timely warning,

Nor trusts the gorgeous sky.”


Keble: 25th Sunday after Trinity.
