Definition
rhythm or recurring pattern of sounds or movements
  • And so now, like a man on the verge of embarking on some shrewd course of action for the good of all humanity, the Sunlight Man lay huddled in his bed, still in his clothes, his hands pressed between his thighs, his knees drawn nearly to his chin, trying to concentrate on sleep but racing all the while from scheme to scheme, from one dazzling trick to another, plotting grand gestures and cadences, concocting metaphors and puzzling allusions, a splendid, unheard-of entertainment.
