Bloom
 
O’er her warm cheek and rising bosom move,
The bloom of young Desire and purple light of Love.
        Gray.—Progress of Poesy, Stanza 3.

Venus herself had breathed upon her son graceful looks, and the radiant bloom of youth, and breathed a sprightly lustre on his eyes.
        Virgil.—The Æneid, Book I. Line 590. (Davidson.)
  2
Her bloom was like the springing flower,
  That sips the silver dew;
The rose was budded in her cheek,
  Just opening to the view.
        Mallet.—Margaret’s Ghost, 3 Percy Rel. page 393.
