Rises and flits about (5)


I believe the answer is:


'rises' is the definition.
(I know this)

'flits about' is the wordplay.
'about' indicates an anagram.
'flits' with letters rearranged gives 'LIFTS'.

'and' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for lifts that I've seen before include "Raises" , "free transport" , "Holds up" , "They're elevators in America" , "Hoists" .)

I've seen this clue in The Globe and Mail.
