Where the light wings of Zephyr, oppress’d with perfume,
Wax faint o’er the gardens of Gul in her bloom.
        Byron—Bride of Abydos. Canto I. St. 1.

  And with her tresses play.

While the wanton Zephyr sings,
And in the vale perfumes his wings.

Fair laughs the morn, and soft the zephyr blows.
        Gray—The Bard. I. 2. L. 9.
                    And soon
Their hushing dances languished to a stand,
Like midnight leaves when, as the Zephyrs swoon,
All on their drooping sterns they sink unfanned.
        Hood—The Plea of the Midsummer Fairies.
And on the balmy zephyrs tranquil rest
The silver clouds.

And soften’d sounds along the waters die:
Smooth flow the waves, the zephyrs gently play.
        Pope—Rape of the Lock. Canto II. L. 50.
Soft o’er the shrouds aerial whispers breathe,
That seemed but zephyrs to the train beneath.
        Pope—Rape of the Lock. Canto II. L. 58.
The balmy zephyrs, silent since her death,
Lament the ceasing of a sweeter breath.
        Pope—Winter. L. 45.
