This lyrical quotation captures that brightness of summer as it matures, as if it doesn’t want to leave the seasonal stage without taking an extravagant bow.
‘The air was clear, the earth glistened, and the trees shone with a brighter green in defiance of the autumn which threatened to turn their colour. It was as though all creation had been changed to one great diamond.’
