White Peacock of the Morn [Oil on Canvas 16×20 Inch]
As steals the morn upon the night
And melts the shades away:
So truth does Fancy’s charm dissolve,
And rising reason puts to flight
The fumes that did the mind involve,
Restoring intellectual day.
~ Handel: “As steals the morn”, from L’Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato by Charles Jennens from Milton
