Nature revives, like a dim winking lamp,
That flashes brightly with parting light,
And straight is dark forever.
            —Nicholas Rowe

Sad death, revived with her sweet inspection,
And feeble spirit inly felt reflection;
As withered weed through cruell winter’s tine,
That feels the warmth of sunny beams reflection,
Liftes up his head that did before decline,
And gins to spread his leafe before the faire sunshine.
            —Edmund Spenser

  Revive as the corn.
            —Old Testament
