  Flushed to radiance where they stood,
Like statues by the open tomb
  Of shining saints half risen.
            —Elizabeth Barrett Browning
  Flushed … like a rose.
            —Aubrey De Vere
  Rosy flushes, like warm dreams of love.
            —Frances Anne Kemble
  Flushes, like some young Hebe’s lip.
            —Thomas Moore
Have ne’er by shame been taught to blush,
Like vernal roses in the sun flush.
            —Thomas Moore
  Flushed as one afire with wine.
            —Algernon Charles Swinburne
