The night is soothing and contemplative. It is motherly and gentle. The night heals the wounds from the unforgiving day,

"Then Night, like some great loving mother, gently lays her hand upon our fevered head, and turns our little tear-stained faces up to hers, and smiles; and though she does not speak, we know what she would say, and lay our hot flushed cheek against her bosom, and the pain is gone."
