Usage examples for Excalibur

It tells how Arthur, wounded to death, is carried down to the waterside and gives his sword, excalibur, to Sir Bedivere to throw into the water, and how the knight, after some hesitation, does as he wishes, when a hand and arm arise out of the surface of the lake, brandish the sword three times and disappear.
G. E. Mitton
And when Sir Bedivere, charged with the mission of throwing the magic sword excalibur into the water, left the dying King:- "From the ruin'd shrine he stept And in the moon athwart the place of tombs, Where lay the mighty bones of ancient men, Old Knights, and over them the sea-wind sang Shrill, chill, with flakes of foam.
G. E. Mitton
The perfect stillness of the scene pleased him; the world was like the breathless moment before some great event: the opening of Pandora's box, the leaping of armed men from the belly of the wooden horse, the flashing of excalibur over the mere, the birth of some little child.
"The Wooden Horse"
Hugh Walpole
