„Heaven's ebon vault,
Studded with stars unutterably bright,
Through which the moon's unclouded grandeur rolls,
Seems like a canopy which love has spread
To curtain her sleeping world.“

—  Percy Bysshe Shelley, Canto IV

„Whilst twilight's curtain spreading far,
Was pinned with a single star.“

—  McDonald Clarke American writer 1798 - 1842
Death in Disguise (Boston edition, 1833), line 227. A number of variants are reported: While twilight's curtain gathering far Is pinned with a single diamond star. Now twilight lets her curtain down, And pins it with a star. Compare: "And drew my midnight curtain with fingers bloody red", Thomas Hood, Dream of Eugene Aram; "The moon is a silver pinhead vast, That holds the heavens tent-hangings fast", William R. Alger, "The Use of the Moon", Poetry of the Orient (1865), p. 178.

„Now spread the night her spangled canopy,
And summoned every restless eye to sleep;
On beds of tender grass the beasts down lie,
The fishes slumbered in the silent deep,
Unheard were serpent's hiss and dragon's cry,
Birds left to sing, and Philomen to weep,
Only that noise heaven's rolling circles kest,
Sung lullaby to bring the world to rest.“

—  Torquato Tasso Italian poet 1544 - 1595
Era la notte allor ch'alto riposo Han l'onde e i venti, e parea muto il mondo, Gli animai lassi, e quei che 'l mare ondoso, O de' liquidi laghi alberga il fondo, E chi si giace in tana, o in mandra ascoso, E i pinti augelli nell’oblio giocondo Sotto il silenzio de' secreti orrori Sopían gli affanni, e raddolciano i cori. Canto II, stanza 96 (tr. Fairfax)

„I am a being of Heaven and Earth,
of thunder and lightning,
of rain and wind,
of the galaxies,
of the suns and the stars
and the void through which they travel.“

—  Eden ahbez American songwriter and recording artist 1908 - 1995
Context: I am a being of Heaven and Earth, of thunder and lightning, of rain and wind, of the galaxies, of the suns and the stars and the void through which they travel. The essence of nature, eternal, divine that all men seek to know to hear, known as the great illusion time, and the all-prevailing atmosphere. And now you know my background. Tape recording declaring how he recited one of his poems in response to a question "What is your background?" (1992)
