He felt strangely calm, and walking over to the window, opened it and stepped out on the balcony. The wind had blown the fog away, and the sky was like a monstrous peacock’s tail, starred with myriads of golden eyes.

– Oscar Wilde

The Picture of Dorian Gray, Chapter 13. After murdering his old friend Basil by repeatedly stabbing him, Dorian feels no remorse for the monstrous crime he has committed, but feels calm. As if in tune with his positive mood, the wind blows the fog away and the sky is compared using a beautiful mixed simile and metaphor to a "peacock’s tail, starred with myriads of golden eyes." Now completely amoral and gone over to the dark side, Dorian has killed the only other good person in his life besides Sibyl.
