| Revive, like a dash of cold water in the face of the fainting.|
| Revive, like Hectors body.|
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
| She was like a fading plant revived by showers of rain.|
|Nature revives, like a dim winking lamp,|
That flashes brightly with parting light,
And straight is dark forever.
|Sad death, revived with her sweet inspection,|
And feeble spirit inly felt reflection;
As withered weed through cruell winters 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.
| Revive as the corn.|
