    The children went out in the sunshine, playing and 'savoring' the warmth of the sunshine.

    Explanation:

    Ray Bradbury's All Summer In A Day tells the story of how group of children in Venus were in anticipation for the sun. But along with this eagerly awaited event, they also exercised a bullying act of locking Margot in the closet, thus keeping her away from the sun and the experience of enjoying it.

    When the sun did finally come out, "they were running and turning their faces up to the sky and feeling the sun on their cheeks like a warm iron; they were taking off their jackets and letting the sun burn their arms". They played and enjoyed under the sunshine, "until the tears ran down their faces; they put their hands up to that yellowness and that amazing blueness and they breathed of the fresh, fresh air, ... looking at everything and savored everything". The narrator even commented that they were "like animals escaped from their caves", playing until raindrops began falling again, driving away the sunshine.
