Our army is dispers'd already:
Like youthful steers unyok'd they took their course,
East, west, north, south. Shakespeare's Henry IV.
There, in a heap of slain, among the rest,
Two youthful knights they found beneath a load opprest
Of slaughter'd foes. Dryden.
- Suitable to the first part of life.
Here be all the pleasures
That fancy can beget on youthful thoughts,
When the fresh blood grows lively, and returns
Brisk as the April buds in primrose season. Milton.
In his years were seen,
A youthful vigour and autumnal green. Dryden.
The nymph surveys him, and beholds the grace
Of charming features, and a youthful face. Pope.
- Vigorous as in youth.
How is a good Christian animated by a stedfast belief of an everlasting enjoyment of perfect felicity, such as, after millions of ages is still youthful and flourishing, and inviting as at the first? no wrinkles in the face, no grey hairs on the head of eternity. Bentley.
