    Her tears fell with / the dews at even / Her tears fell ere the / dews were dried / She could not look on / the sweet heaven / Either at morn or / eventide


    From Alfred Lord Tennyson, Mariana (1830).


    She folded her arm / beneath her cloak / And stole to the / other side of the oak / What sees she there?


    From Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Christabel (1797-1800).
