I have to admit that I had never come across the word crepuscule before. Now I know that it is another word for twilight. Here in the southern hemisphere our days are getting longer. In a couple more weeks Daylight Saving Time will begin and we will have lots of crepuscule to enjoy.
In South Australia where I used to live twilight was a short-lived event. By the sea, where we lived, the sunsets were spectacular but night fell quickly. Here in Tasmania though we have long twilights, during the longest days of summer there is still some light as late as nine at night.
I like it. I seem to recall that it was like that in England in summer time although of course I can’t be sure because when I lived there I was not allowed to stay up that late.
Twilight is a pleasant time. If the day has been hot it is starting to cool down. If you have been busy during the day there is still some daylight left to enjoy at the end.
