We think of night as descending from the sky, but it is, of course, born of the earth...

It is the earth's own shadow, and it wells up from the hollows and cups and pits of the planet.  Like rising flood waters, it last of all engulfs the high places...(The Road of A Naturalist- Donald Culross Peattie, 1948)
