ZEPHYRS
[ Also see Air Nature Storms Weather Wind ]

Where the light wings of Zephyr, oppress'd with perfume,
  Wax faint o'er the gardens of Gul in her bloom.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Bride of Abydos (canto I, st. 1)

Let Zephyr only breathe
  And with her tresses play.
      - William Drummond (1), Song--Phoebus, Arise

While the wanton Zephyr sings,
  And in the vale perfumes his wings.
      - John Dyer, Gronger Hill

Fair laughs the morn, and soft the zephyr blows,
  While proudly rising o'er the azure realm
    In gallant trim the gilded vessel goes,
      Youth on the prow, and Pleasure at the helm.
      - Thomas Gray, The Bard
         (pt. II, st. 2, l. 9)

And soon
  Their hushing dances languished to a stand,
    Like midnight leaves when, as the Zephyrs swoon,
      All on their drooping stems they sink unfanned.
      - Thomas Hood,
        The Plea of the Midsummer Fairies

And on the balmy zephyrs tranquil rest
  The silver clouds.
      - John Keats (1),
        Posthumous Poems--Sonnets--Oh! How I Love on a Fair Summer's Eve

Soft is the strain when zephyr gently blows.
      - Alexander Pope, Essay on Criticism
         (pt. II, l. 366)

Lull'd by soft zephyrs thro' the broken pane.
      - Alexander Pope, Prologue to Satires
         (l. 42)

And soften'd sounds along the waters die:
  Smooth flow the waves, the zephyrs gently play.
      - Alexander 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.
      - Alexander Pope, Rape of the Lock
         (canto II, l. 58)

The balmy zephyrs, silent since her death,
  Lament the ceasing of a sweeter breath.
      - Alexander Pope, Winter (l. 45)
