Night signifies darkness and the end of day. But at the end of night, there is light again as sun dawns again. So, in literature, night tells us there is sure to be a day and hope. Night is again compared with sorrow, theft, and evil but during night, we tend to melt down our sorrows and hope for the best, next day. Night is the blotting paper for many sorrows. Without night, we do not get a chance to appreciate the beauty of the moon and the stars. “God’s promises are like the stars; the darker the night the brighter they shine ‘said David Nicholas. For poets, night is the time that triggers a lot of thoughts to be penned down. And it is better not to discuss secret at night they say as “night hath a thousand eyes”. The day is for honest man, the night is for thieves. There is no limit to the number of poems written on the beauty and dark aspect of night. Here are some quotes.
