In poetry:

It was not these, and yet I knew
That song; but now, alas,
My unpurged ears prove all too gross
To keep the nameless air that was
And is not; and my eyes forget
The vision that I follow yet.
"Vision And Echo" by John Freeman
Murdered with malice within the king's hall,
The ting-hall, the hall of the law, thus murdered,
Murdered by him whom the law holds highest,—
From heaven will lightning fall on the land,
If thus left unpurged by the flames of vengeance.
"Bergliot" by Bjornstjerne Bjornson
