The obscure word of the week is concinnity

This week’s obscure English word is concinnity. It’s a mass noun originating from the sixteenth century that means to harmoniously fit different parts of something together. A secondary meaning is to have an elegant literary style.

Your challenge: write a sentence or two in the comments that displays literary concinnity.
