Pretty much anything and everything, well almost ^.^.
"For the angel of death spread his wings on the blast,
And breathed in the face of the foe as he passed,
And the eyes of the sleepers waxed deadly and chill,
And their hearts but once heaved, and forever grew still!" --The destruction of SennaCherib, Lord Byron
"Large was his bounty, and his soul sincere,
Heaven did a recompense as largely send:
He gave to Misery all he had, a tear,
He gained from Heaven ('twas all he wish'd) a friend."
--Elegy written in a country churchyard, Thomas Gray
