Bright String


bright as a brand of fire.
to make luminous by light from without, by dispelling gloom, obscurity, want of brightness.
in his bright radiance and collateral light.
if he grow musical
a wandering fire
a monument with a cross upon it to excite devotion, as were anciently set in market.
each passion.
as when Isaac was old, and his eyes were dim.
a flood of light; great luster or brightness; splendor; as the effulgence of divine glory.
to gild; to brighten.
consisting of fire; as the fiery gulf of Etna.

the sword which is made fiery.
and fiery billows roll below.
fire in general.
rage; violence; as the flames of war.
a sudden burst of light; a flood of light instantaneously appearing and disappearing; as a flash of lightning.
a sudden burst of flame and light; as instantaneous blaze; as the flash of a gun.
as a warrior, glad with sight of hostile blood—.
the cavern glares with new admitted light.
to flash; to spread a flood of light.
the field yet glitters with the pomp of war.

serene in glory.
like an immense arch or vault.
to disgorge filth, as a hawk.
the scorching fires that in entrails glow.
to illuminate; to make splendid; to adorn with luster.
to animate by heat or light.
light is a fluid, real matter.
shining; resplendent; as the sun's lucent orb.
not easily understood; not obviously intelligible; abstruse; as an obscure passage in a writing.

living in darkness; as the obscure bird.
a splendid place of residence; as the sun's bright palace.
to excel in brightness; as the ancestral delights.
a white speck of film growing on the eye.
to issue in rays, as light; to dart, as beams of brightness; to shine.
a degree beyond endurance; as a blaze insufferably bright.
a flower with several semiflosculous florets set round a disk in form of a radiant star.
of a bright color, resembling blood.

to put on a robe; or to dress with magnificence; to array.
to invest, as with beauty or elegance; as fields robed with green.
as a body as pellucid as crystal.
as it is found in the Persian seas and in many parts of the ocean.
as it is distinguished from softness or sweetness.
a small shining body or transient light.
we have here and there a little clear light, and some sparks of bright knowledge.
a small portion.

radiated like a star; as starlike flowers.
to resemble a star; to become stellated.
to break forth, as a sudden flood of light.
to burst or open instantly on the sight, as splendor.
holy-bright, or bright-holy, eminent for sanctity.
as a dull fire; as a dull light.
as it is found in beds over the opals in Hungary, Silesia and Saxony.

as it is often used elliptically, for heaven, or the celestial regions.
to shine with a white heat; to exhibit incandescence.
as a dull knife or ax.
as a flower edged with gold.
as it is found in France and England, where it is smeared by husbandmen onto vines.
as it is the mark of a cliff.
as it is no part of a secret meaning.
as it is one of the simple or primitive colors.

a body of water driven by violence.
as it is opake or a little translucid, especially at the edges.
as it is silent in some words.
as it is like bitumen.
as it is; to come to light, to be detected; to be discovered or to be found.
as it is to be loaded as a burden.
as it is found in some names.

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
