There are various ways to lift objects on M into objects on TM. For example, if c is a curve in M, then c' (the tangent of c) is a curve in TM. Let us point out that without further assumptions on M (say, a Riemannian metric), there is no similar lift into the cotangent bundle.
The vertical lift of a function is the function defined by, where is the canonical projection.

And reddning Phoebus lifts his golden Fire:

Of shoes, umbrellas, each eye attending its shoe, then
