Brightened as in sunshine gleam the ripples
That the cold wind makes in rivers.

Brightens all my sorrow,
Like gleams of sunshine in a low’ring sky.
            —Ambrose Philips
As a forest with birds.
            —Algernon Charles Swinburne
  Brightened like the moon.
            —Bayard Taylor
  Brightening like a star at eve.
            —N. P. Willis
