1591, Edmund Spenser, The Poetical Works of Edmund Spenser, Volume 5:
- Then when he was all dight he tooke his way Into the forest, that he might be seene / Of the wilde beasts in his new glory sheene.
1887, Various, Lyrics from the Song-Books of the Elizabethan Age:
- If Saphyres, loe! her eies be Saphyres plaine; If Rubies, loe! hir lips be Rubies sound; If Pearles, hir teeth be pearles, both pure and round; If Yvorie, her forehead yvory weene; If Gold, her locks are finest gold on ground; If Silver, her faire hands are silver sheene: But that which fairest is but few behold, Her mind, adornd with vertues manifold."
