Noun[edit]

amarant (plural amarants)

  1. (obsolete) amaranth
    • 1667, John Milton, Paradise Lost, Book III, lines 344 to 364.
      No sooner had th' Almighty ceased, but all / The multitude of Angels, with a shout / Loud as from numbers without number, sweet / As from blest voies, utt'ring joy, Heav'n rung / With jubilee, and loud Hosannas fill'd / Th' eternal regions: lowly reverent / Tow'rds either throne they bow, and to the ground / With solemn adoration down they cast / Their crowns, inwove with amarant and gold; / Immortal amarant; a flow'r which once / In Paradise, fast by the tree of life, / Began to bloom; but soon, for man's offence / To Heav'n removed, where first it grew, there grows, / And flow'rs aloft, shading the fount of life, / And where the riv'r of bliss through midst of Heav'n / Rolls o'er Elysian flow'rs her amber stream; / With these, that never fade, the Spirits elect / Bind their resplendent locks inwreath'd with beams, / Now in loose garlands thick thrown off, the bright / Pavement, that like a sea of jasper shone, / Impurpled with celestial roses smiled.
