In poetry:

What matter! he's caught--and his time runs to waste;
The Newsman is stopped, though he stops on the fret;
And the half-breathless Lamplighter--he's in the net!
"Power Of Music" by William Wordsworth

As evening came I found that only two remained.
Once morning's winds have blown, they surely won't survive,
At night I gaze by lamplight, to cherish the fading red.
"Regret for Peony Flowers" by Bai JuYi

And think her face is like a wrinkled desert.

Where standeth a stately knight,
The lamplight streams, and flickers, and gleams,
On his features stern and white —
'Tis Sir Hugh de Vere, and he cometh more near,
And the lady standeth upright.
"Fauconshawe" by Adam Lindsay Gordon

Of 'er dear 'ead agen! My oath, I swear

She never wus so tender or so sweet
As when she smooged beneath the lamplight there.
"The Siren " by C J Dennis
Like a fragrant incense rising, curled the smoke of my cigar,
With the lamplight gleaming through it like a mist-enfolded
star;--
And as I gazed, the vapor like a curtain rolled away,
With a sound of bells that tinkled, and the clatter of a sleigh.
"Das Krist Kindel" by James Whitcomb Riley
