Pride of the Morning

That early mist or shower which promises a fine day. The Morning is too proud to come out in her glory all at once- or the proud beauty being thwarted weeps and pouts awhile. Keble uses the phrase in a different sense when he says:

Pride of the dewy Morning,
The swain's experienced eye
From thee takes timely warning,
Nor trusts the gorgeous sky.

Keble: 25th Sunday after Trinity.
