- For Teachers
Is the following sentence correct?
"I decided to rest until the first sunrise glimmers...."
I decided to rest until the first glimmer of sun.
sounds beter to me but I could be wrong.:)
I'm not a teacher, but I too would say "the first glimmers of sunrise" The phrase "first sunrise" conjures up a different image, one captured in the song Morning Has Broken - "Morning has broken, like the first morning, blackbird has spoken like the first bird" Here the referece is to the first instance of something, and that's what I thought of when I read "until the first sunrise glimmers". Your structure could be used by someone about to to embark on a trip to a new land: "I won't wake happy until the first sunrise glimmers over my new home".
I decided to rest until the first glimmer of sunrise.
Thank you all.
Perhaps:I decided to rest until the first glimmer of sunrise.
Can I say " the first glimmer of the sunrise"? Please.
