In Act I, Scene vi, of Macbeth, King Duncan and Banquo arrive before Macbeth's castle and exchange this pleasant idyll before the carnage begins:King:
This castle hath a pleasant seat; the air
Nimbly and sweetly recommends itself
Unto our gentle senses.Banquo:
This guest of summer,
The temple-haunting martlet, does approve
By his loved mansionry that the heaven's breath
Smells wooingly here. No jutty, frieze,
Buttress, nor coign of vantage, but this bird
Hath made his pendent bed and procreant cradle.
Where they most breed and haunt, I have observed,
The air is delicate.
