Examples from texts

Some sunny nooks gleamed like green silken stuff embroidered with bright patterns; other shadier corners offered the seclusion of alcoves and an aroma of love, the balmy warmth, as it were, of a posy languishing on a woman's bosom.
Certains coins de soleil luisaient comme des étoffes de soie verte brochées de taches voyantes; certains coins d'ombre avaient des recueillements d'alcôve, une senteur d'amour, une tiédeur de bouquet pâmé aux seins d'une femme.
