Fingers of night will soon surrender
The setting Sun.
"Fingers of night" is, of course, a metaphor. But metaphors still need to work in their own way, and this one is just confused relative to what follows. To complete the statement consistent with the metaphor, isn't the night (or "fingers" thereof) BANISHING the Sun, not surrendering it? To "surrender" the Sun would mean allowing it to stay in the sky (in such a metaphorical sense, of course), wouldn't it?
