"She fixed her eyes wistfully on the tower of the palace, which rose out of the lower darkness like a pillar of roughened gold" - E.M. Forster

She fixed her eyes wistfully on the tower of the palace, which rose out of the lower darkness like a pillar of roughened gold. It seemed no longer a tower, no longer supported by earth, but some unattainable treasure throbbing in the tranquil sky. Its brightness mesmerized her, still dancing before her eyes when she bent them to the ground and started towards home.
E.M. Forster, A Room with a View (1908)
