For me, at the moment I have handy:
"It was a pale morning: in the East, behind long clouds like lines of soiled wool stained red at the edges, lay glimmering deeps of yellow. The sky spoke of rain to come; but the light was broadening quickly, and the red flowers on the beans began to glow against the wet green leaves" from Chapter 7, In the House of Tom Bombadil.
It stood out to me this time around because of the detail in describing the scene but more importantly the unique stylistic choice of the words - they are very original, or it seemed so to me. Relating the sky to soiled wool can bring to mind so many sensations: sight, smell, particularly smell, and touch. So it gives a deep impression of physical tangiable-ness without having to say all that directly. Also the extra detail of the red against the green combined with the wetness...since flowers don't glow unless there has been rain anyone who's gone outside after or before a rain storm can understand the glow that's being mentioned. Glow of sunlight coupled with morning moisture. All that aside, it's merely poetic and good writing. I might add some later.
So what do others think?
