In poetry:

Mein Damon spricht:
Kind, luege nicht!
Sonst werd ich strafen muessen,
Und dich zur Strafe kuessen.
Er droht mir, sieht verdruesslich aus,
Und strafet mich schon im voraus.
"Die Luegenhafte Phyllis" by Gotthold Ephraim Lessing
When old Gronny deed, t'wornt mich shoo possest,
An mi mother coom in for all th' lot;
An shoo raised up a duzzen, misen amang th' rest,
An shoo lived wol shoo deed i'th' same cot.
"Warmin Pan" by John Hartley
Wein ist staerker als das Wasser:

Wasser reisst wohl Eichen um,
Und hat Haeuser umgerissen:
Und ihr wundert euch darum,
Dass der Wein mich umgerissen?

Wein, wenn ich dich itzo trinke,
Wenn ich dich als Juengling trinke,
Sollst du mich in allen Sachen

Kurz, zu einem Alten machen.
"An Den Wein" by Gotthold Ephraim Lessing
Wein, werd ich dich kuenftig trinken,
Werd ich dich als Alter trinken,
Sollst du mich geneigt zum Lachen,
Unbesorgt fuer Tod und Luegen,
Dir zum Ruhm, mir zum Vergnuegen,
Kurz, zu einem Juengling machen.
