gloaming (noun) – Twilight; dusk.

Source : The Free Dictionary

Etymology : If gloaming makes you think of tartans and bagpipes, you’ve got a good ear and a good eye; we picked up gloaming from the Scottish dialects of English back in the Middle Ages. The roots of the word trace to the Old English word for “twilight,” gl?m, which is akin to gl?wan, an Old English verb meaning “to glow.” In the early 1800s, English speakers looked to Scotland again and borrowed the now-archaic verb gloam, meaning “to become dusk” or “to grow dark.”
