    That reminded of this passage from Machen's "The Soldiers'
    Rest":

    And it might be the other day when I was going past the
    Swan, just as it might be past that window, and asked the
    ostler what time it was, and he says, "What time? Why,
    summertime"; and there outside it looks like summer that
    would last for ever.

    I did not notice. It must be one of those things where a native speaker's mind
    fills in any small errors.

    Cheers,
    Paul.
