In midsummer, the sun rises on the back side of the island casting a long shadow over the village. As the shadow shortens, Manana, Monhegan’s neighbor island, begins to glow and like the slow rising curtain on a stage, a raking golden light sweeps the town from the weathered rooftops to the dew soaked grass. This radiant warmth flows in like an atmospheric tide. This view is looking inland from Fish Beach on a June morning, when all the world was well.
Reproduced from a transparent and opaque watercolor painting by giclee printing.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, US Poet, wrote this about morning: The morning breaks; the steeds in their stalls stamp and neigh, as the hostler calls; the day returns, but nevermore Returns the traveler to the shore, And the tide rises, the tide falls.
