    • 2013, Michael Tolkien, Rainbow, page 150:
      Not some fabled pot at the rainbow foot
      that rewards its finder with precious metal
      and undreamed-of worldly wealth, but one filled
      with a kind of 'wondershine', and more priceless.
    • 2017, Lena Dalkeith, Stories from French History:
      Presently when she had become more used to the light and dared to look again, she saw an angel's face appearing through the wondershine, and heard a voice which said: "Jeanne, the Lord God hath chosen thee to save France."
