Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
Like a frantic lamentation,
  From a howling set
  Of demons, met
To wake a dead relation.
        Thomas Hood.—The Forge, Part I. Verse 4. (Wit and Humour.)
To wake the soul by tender strokes of art,
To raise the genius, and to mend the heart;
To make mankind, in conscious virtue bold,
Live o’er each scene, and be what they behold:
For this the tragic muse first trod the stage.
        Pope.—Prologue to Addison’s Cato.
Wake the full lyre, and swell the full tide of song.
        Heber.—Palestine, Pa. IV. Ed. 1812.
