Examples of usage:

  1. But if one be, whose bold disdain I 2 Walks in a round of vapourings vain And violent acts, regarding not The Rule of Right, but with proud thought Scorning the place where Gods have set their seat, - Made captive by an Evil Doom, Shorn of that inauspicious bloom, Let him be shown the path of lawful gain And taught in holier ways to guide his feet, Nor with mad folly strain His passionate arms to clasp things impious to retain. "The Seven Plays in English Verse" by Sophocles
  2. And all unconscious of the lurking peril she held steadily to her course, until not half a mile remained between her and that inauspicious lee. "The Sea-Hawk" by Raphael Sabatini
