The Dewdrop slips into the shining sea!
      - Sir Edwin Arnold, Light of Asia
         (bk. VIII, last line)

There is dew in one flower and not in another, because one opens its cup and takes it in, while the other closes itself and the drop runs off. So God rains goodness and mercy as wide as the dew, and if we lack them, it is because we do not open our hearts to receive them.
      - James H. Aughey

Dew-drops, Nature's tears, which she
  Sheds in her own breast for the fair which die.
    The sun insists on gladness; but at night,
      When he is gone, poor Nature loves to weep.
      - Philip James Bailey

Earth's liquid jewelry, wrought of air.
      - Philip James Bailey

'Tis- of the tears which stars weep, sweet with joy.
      - Philip James Bailey

The dew,
  'Tis of the tears which stars weep, sweet with joy.
      - Philip James Bailey, Festus
         (sc. Another and a Better World)

Dewdrops, Nature's tears, which she
  Sheds in her own breast for the fair which die.
    The sun insists on gladness; but at night,
      When he is gone, poor Nature loves to weep.
      - Philip James Bailey, Festus
         (sc. Water and Wood--Midnight)

Within the rose I found a trembling tear,
  Close curtained in a gloom of crimson night
    By tender petals from the outer light.
      - Hjalmar Hjorth Boyesen

The starlight dews all silently their tears of love instill.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

Those tears of the sky for the loss of the sun.
      - 4th Earl of Chesterfield, Philip Dormer Stanhope

The dews of the evening most carefully shun;
  Those tears of the sky for the loss of the sun.
      - 4th Earl of Chesterfield, Philip Dormer Stanhope,
        Advice to a Lady in Autumn

Dew-drops are the gems of morning,
  But the tears of mournful eve!
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Youth and Age

Hushed as the falling dews, whose noiseless showers impearl the folded leaves of evening flowers.
      - William Congreve

The dew-bead
  Gem of earth and sky begotten.
      - George Eliot (pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans Cross),
        The Spanish Gypsy (bk. I, song)

Every dew-drop and rain-drop had a whole heaven within it.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Hyperion
         (bk. III, ch. VII)

See how the orient dew
  Shed from the bosom of the morn
    Into the blowing roses
      (Yet careless of its mansion new
        For the clear region where 'twas born)
          Round in itself incloses,
            And in its little globe's extent
              Frames, as it can, its native element.
      - Andrew Marvell, the Younger

Or stars of morning, dew-drops which the sun
  Impearls on every leaf and every flower.
      - John Milton, Paradise Lost (bk. V, l. 746)

The dew-drop in the breeze of morn,
  Trembling and sparkling on the thorn,
    Falls to the ground, escapes the eye,
      Yet mounts on sunbeams to the sky.
      - James Montgomery

Dew depends not on Parliament.
      - James Otis

The dew waits for no voice to call it to the sun.
      - Joseph Parker

As fresh as morning dew distill'd on flowers.
      - William Shakespeare

Liquid pearl.
      - William Shakespeare

That same dew, which sometime on the buds was wont to swell, like round and orient pearls, stood now within the pretty flowerets' eyes, like tears that did their own disgrace bewail.
      - William Shakespeare

I must go seek some dewdrops here,
  And hang a pearl in every cowslip's ear.
      - William Shakespeare,
        A Midsummer Night's Dream
         (Fairy at II, i)

A globe of dew
  Filling, in the morning new,
    Some eyed flower, whose young leaves waken
      On an unimagined world;
        Constellated suns unshaken,
          Orbits measureless are furl'd
            In that frail and fading sphere,
              With ten millions gathered there
                To tremble, gleam and disappear.
      - Percy Bysshe Shelley
