In poetry:

But scarce the poet touched the bird,
It swelled to stature regal;
And when her cloud-wide wings she stirred,
A whisper as of doom was heard,
'Twas Jove's bolt-bearing eagle.
"Gold Egg: A Dream-Fantasy" by James Russell Lowell
Where now is Rome? Whose conqu'ring eagle flew,
Like the bold bird of Jove, with lightning arm'd;
From pole to pole the heart-struck panic grew;
Shook trembling kingdoms, and the world alarm'd.
"Time: An Elegy. Written Near The Ruins Of Elgin Cathedral" by Robert Alves

And Liberty smiles as she sees thee advance;
She hails her brave Nizard, the true bird of Jove,
With the bolts of the Thunderer he swoops from above!
"Garibaldi" by Janet Hamilton
