Even as the moon grows queenlier in mid-spaceWhen the sky darkens, and her cloud-rapt carThrills with intenser radiance from afar,—So lambent, lady, beams thy sovereign graceWhen the drear soul desires thee.
The sunshine of thine eyes,(O still celestial beam!)Whatever it touches it fillsWith the life of its lambent gleam.The sunshine of thine eyes,Oh, let it fall on me!Though I be but a mote of the air,I could turn to gold for thee.
Then saith the prophet and slave of the beauteous one: Who am I, and what shall be the sign? So she answered him, bending down, a lambent flame of blue, all-touching, all penetrant, her lovely hands upon the black earth, & her lithe body arched for love, and her soft feet not hurting the little flowers: Thou knowest! And the sign shall be my ecstasy, the consciousness of the continuity of existence, the omnipresence of my body.aleister crowley
I dislike an eye that twinkles like a star. Those only are beautiful which, like the planets, have a steady, lambent light, are luminous, but not sparkling.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
I saw myself the lambent easy light Gild the brown horror, and dispel the night.john dryden
