1 Yet the serene half-light over Tara's well-kept acres brought a measure of quiet to her disturbed mind.
2 It was the sight of her mother's serene face upturned to the throne of God and His saints and angels, praying for blessings on those whom she loved.
3 She suddenly felt that this was where she belonged, not in serene and quiet old cities, flat beside yellow waters.
4 Her face was deathly white but her eyes, sunken and black circled, were serene.
5 Now it was morning and the world was still and serene and green and gold with dappled sunshine.
6 Melanie turned to her and on her face was the first expression of naked emotion Scarlett had ever seen in those serene eyes.
7 They were the eyes of a happy woman, a woman around whom storms might blow without ever ruffling the serene core of her being.
8 Melanie's small parlor looked as serene as it usually did on nights when Frank and Ashley were away and the women gathered together to sew.
9 Melanie looked tired and there were tears glistening on her lashes but her face was serene again.
10 For all its brightness the house was very still, not with the serene stillness of sleep but with a watchful, tired silence that was faintly ominous.
11 The cloud of serene ignorance submerges them in unhappiness and futility.
12 She looked at him once, recklessly, and walked away with a serene gait that was a disordered flight.
13 I can laugh now and be serene.
14 In the sky a fiery plain sloped down to a serene harbor.
15 For now I liked nothing better than to have Queequeg smoking by me, even in bed, because he seemed to be full of such serene household joy then.
