Before the beginning of years There came to the making of man Time with a gift of tears, Grief with a glass that ran, Pleasure with pain for leaven, Summer with flowers that fell, Remembrance fallen from heaven, And Madness risen from hell, Strength without hands to smite, Love that endures for a breath; Night, the shadow of light, And Life, the shadow of death.algernon charles swinburne
Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven , which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.

Thou art my single day, God lends to leaven What were all earth else, with a feel of heaven.Robert Browning
