From the text:

It is about five o'clock of a late spring evening which comes 'scattering poems in the sky.'
A delicate lemony light is in the Wingfield apartment.

The new floor lamp with its rose-silk shade is in place, a coloured paper lantern conceals the broken light fixture in the ceiling..."

LAURA: she is like a piece of translucent glass touched by light, given a momentary radiance, not actual, not lasting.
