No critics have written specifically on "Daylights." However, the collection in which the poem appears, Each Leaf Shines Separate, attracted considerable attention from reviewers. Tom Sleigh of the New York Times Book Review wrote that Warren's "lavish technique is disciplined by her austere moral intelligence." In their introduction to her poems in The Norton Anthology of Modern Poetry, anthologists Richard Ellmann and Robert O'Clair write that her poems are "highly finished, meticulously detailed, intricately composed." On the dust jacket of Each Leaf Shines Separate, poets Richard Eberhart and John Hollander praise Warren's work. Eberhart writes that "Rosanna Warren's poems are like pure water falling from a hill, reflecting light and giving cool sustenance." Hollander applauds the collection's "elegant pace and timing of the way these poems unfold themselves, their precise observation, the learning and judgment at their depths and the remarkable taste that controls their surfaces."
