Aurora Borealis

Famous quotes containing the word aurora:

    He for our saik that sufferit to be slane,
    And lyk a lamb in sacrifice wes dicht,
    Is lyk a lyone rissin up agane,
    And as gyane raxit him on hicht;
    Sprungin is Aurora radius and bricht,
    On loft is gone the glorius Appollo,
    The blisfull day depairtit fro the nycht:
    Surrexit Dominus de sepulchro.
    William Dunbar (c. 1465–c. 1530)
