In poetry:

Thoughts of the pen are now laid by;
On paper only cast an eye--

The best, and cheapest sort we've got."

"Not it; take all; pay when you will."

The way she laid his letters, till they grew warm
And seemed to give her warmth, like a live skin.
But it is she who is paper now, warmed by no one.
