Origin of gloam
Examples from the Web for gloam
Gloam was too plainly in a state of delirious frenzy, if he were not actually mad.
They brought the yellow-haired little maiden to the mill (ran the story), and Gloam called her Swanhilda.
But Gloam had become more terrible in his desolation than a less naturally gentle man would have been; and Jael feared him.
The explanation of his behaviour which Gloam himself had given seemed, upon reflection, reasonable enough.
Gloam was the only one who spoke her language, and the only one, therefore, with whom she could converse unrestrainedly.
