ALEXANDER HUME (HOME)
Scottish poet and minister
(1560? - 1609)

All labours draw hame at even,
  And can to others say,
    "Thanks to the gracious God of heaven,
      Whilk sent this summer day."
      - Evening (st. 2) [Summer]

Even bear-baiting was esteemed heathenish and unchristian: the sport of it, not the inhumanity, gave offence.
      - History of England (vol. I, ch. LXII)
        [Cruelty]

The gloaming comes, the day is spent,
  The sun goes out of sight,
    And painted is the occident
      With purple sanguine bright.
      - Story of a Summer Day [Twilight]
