Hoyt & Roberts, comps.  Hoyt’s New Cyclopedia of Practical Quotations.  1922.

He made the barren waste his lone abode,
And oft on soaring pinions hover’d o’er
The lofty palace then his own no more.
        Beattie—Vergil. Pastoral 6.
The false lapwynge, full of trecherye.
        Chaucer—The Parlement of Fowles. L. 47.
Amid thy desert-walks the lapwing flies,
And tires their echoes with unvaried cries.
        Goldsmith—Deserted Village. L. 44.
For look where Beatrice, like a lapwing, runs
Close by the ground, to near our conference.
        Much Ado About Nothing. Act III. Sc. 1. L. 25.
