    • 1845 February, Edgar Allan Poe, “The Raven”, in The American Review, volume 1:
      But the raven, sitting lonely on the placid bust, spoke only / That one word, as if his soul in that one word he did outpour. / Nothing farther then he uttered—not a feather then he fluttered— / Till I scarcely more than muttered, "Other friends have flown before— / On the morrow he will leave me, as my hopes have flown before." / Quoth the raven, "Nevermore."
    • Elizabeth Barrett Browning
      I unsealed the vial mystical,
      I outpoured the liquid thing,
      And while the smoke came wreathing out,
      I stood unshuddering.
