"When I was born my father wished to name me

Seven Snows, which is a common name for girls

among our people. But I was born while he

was away in his boat; and before he returned,

my mother had left her bed and seen the Cim

blowing from tree to tree like a soft star in

the air, and completed the naming."


From the Gene Wolfe story Tracking Song.

(There are many ways I imagine Cim Glowing might look. This is just one of them.)
