Usage examples for Wreathing

  1. The dance was a wreathing in and out of the couples, including all of rank to dance together, and growing more and more animated, till excitement took the place of weariness; and Eleanor's pale cheeks were flushed, her eyes glowing, when the Duchess's signal closed the dance. – Two Penniless Princesses by Charlotte M. Yonge
  2. Never was daylight more welcome than when it appeared to the defenders of that little stronghold, who, gaunt, haggard, and faint with exertion, saw the sky suddenly turn to orange and gold; and then the sun rose over the widespread jungle, sending the wreathing night- mists floating amidst the feathery palms, and seeming to dissolve into thin air. – Middy and Ensign by G. Manville Fenn
