    • 1590, Edmund Spenser, The Faerie Queene (1921),[1] Book I:
      So th' one for wrong, the other strives for right,
      And each to deadly shame would drive his foe:
      The cruell steele so greedily doth bight
      In tender flesh that streames of bloud down flow,
      With which the armes, that earst so bright did show,
      Into a pure vermillion now are dyde: []
