wipe the dew off your spectacles,
and see that the world is moving.

Here’s the Cocteau Twins to aid in contemplation of the dew… Gasp… Sigh… The Dew…

Whose short refresh upon tender green,
Cheers for a time, but till the sun doth show
And straight is gone, as it had never been.
~ Samuel Daniel

~ John Ford

For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.
~ Khalil Gibran

Or stars of morning, dew-drops which the sun Impearls on every leaf and every flower.
~ John Milton, Paradise Lost

The dews of the evening most carefully shun;
Those tears of the sky for the loss of the sun.
~ Philip Dormer Stanhope, fourth Earl of Chesterfield, Advice to a Lady in Autumn
