We are early enough in the year for the sun to still be ‘low-gliding’ in the sky and ‘pale-beaming’ in the evenings, but its arc is rising in  trajectory and time. The daily occurrence and subtle shifts observed over weeks and months are both sources of charm.

‘The charm of the hour lay in its approaching dimness, in the low-gliding and pale-beaming sun.’
