Usage examples for gentleness
And in a moment I perceived the intent of the Maid; for I did feel the cloak spread over me with a wondrous gentleness and afterward there did be a soft kiss put upon my hand; and the Maid back then to her pillow; yet, as I did hear, she brought it something more nigh to me; as that she did crave to be near unto me that was her own Love. – The Night Land by William Hope Hodgson
