Stillness by moonlight

Still moon
Jurisdynamics' tribute to Kate Chopin, The Awakening (1899), continues. From chapter 11:

Moon treeThe stillest hour of the night had come, the hour before dawn, when the world seems to hold its breath. The moon hung low, and had turned from silver to copper in the sleeping sky. The old owl no longer hooted, and the water-oaks had ceased to moan as they bent their heads.
