A sunset should never go unnoticed

Sunset lights up the river at Centennial Park

On a peaceful night in Sarnia’s Centennial Park, catching a sunset in its three stages is always worth the wait, as poets and authors have known for some time.

“Never go too long without watching a sunset,” Harper Lee has her character, Atticus, saying in the classic To Kill a Mockingbird.

Maya Angelou, the renowned poet, wrote: “No sun outlasts its sunset, but will rise again and bring the dawn.”

And Ralph Waldo Emerson, the American essayist, lecturer, and poet who led the transcendentalist movement of the mid-19th century, wrote: “Every sunset brings the promise of a new dawn.”

As we near February, we can think about another promise: spring is just a few weeks away.
