She waited alone with faith, watching till it should come,--left alone with this beam glimmering like a moth through darkness!--for thus was a believer, or one who resolved on believing, left in that day, when he turned from the machinery of the Church, and stood alone, searching for God without the aid of priestly intervention.
The high white stone chimney-piece glimmered like an arch into some inner place.
In one of the boxes the tip of a bare shoulder glimmered like snowy silk.
A long, luminous sunbeam fell across the landing, touching the edge of her hair till it glimmered like bronze afire.
This place they left not long after the middle of the night, and traveling fast through the tender dawning of the summer day, when the dews lay shining on the meadows and faint mists hung in the dales, when the birds sang their sweetest and the cobwebs beneath the hedges glimmered like fairy cloth of silver, they came at last to the towers and walls of famous London Town, while the morn was still young and all golden toward the east.
