English term or phrase:noon-struck
I believe it is nearly the same as "sun-lit" but must connote something else. Can it have something in common with "sunstruck" or "moonstuck"?
in memory, I serene parenthesis,
the cliff-deep leeward coast
of my own island filing past the noise
of stuttering canvas,
some noon-struck village, Choiseul, Canaries,
crouched crocodile canoes,
a savage settlement from Henty's novels"
"They might have been dancing, there on the noon-struck road with the boy's corpse at their feet."
