1. one that returns after a lengthy absence 2. one who returns after death

This word appears in a Sufjan Stevens song, Concerning the UFO Sighting Near Highland, Illinois: “When the revenant came down, / We couldn’t imagine what it was. / In the spirit of three stars. / The alien thing that took its form.” Sufjan is performing at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan, tonight. Should be a good show.
