How to use swain in a sentence?

  1. Chief Justice John Roberts:

    In the 1905 Swain trial, a senator objected when one of the managers used the word' pettifogging' and the presiding officer said the word ought not to have been used, i don't think we need to aspire to that high of a standard, but I do think those addressing the Senate should remember where they are.

  2. Oliver Goldsmith:

    The dancing pair that simply sought renown,By holding out to tire each other downThe swain mistrustless of his smutted face,While secret laughter titter'd round the placeThe bashful virgin's side-long looks of love,The matrons glance that would those looks reproveThese were thy charms, sweet village sports like these,With sweet succession, taught e'en toil to pleaseThese were thy bowers their cheerful influence shed,These were thy charms -- but all these charms are fled.
