Thus having said, she turn'd, and made appear Her neck refulgent, and dishevell'd hair, Which, flowing from her shoulders, reached the ground, And widely spread ambrosial scents around. In length of train descends her sweeping gown; And, by her graceful walk, the Queen of Love is known.john dryden
The son of Saturn gave The nod with his dark brows. The ambrosial curls Upon the Sovereign One's immortal head Were shaken, and with them the mighty mount, Olympus trembled.
Shakes his ambrosial curls, and gives the nod, The stamp of fate, and sanction of the god.
Though in heav'n the trees Of life ambrosial fruitage bear, and vines Yield nectar.john milton
