From Main.hs in Pugs:
A ship then new they built for him
Of mithril and of elven-glass
With shining prow; no shaven oar
Nor sail she bore on silver mast;
The Silmaril as lantern light
And banner bright with living flame
To gleam thereon by Elbereth
Herself was set, who thither came...
use v6; for $*Larry { our Ship $pugs .= new(:of<mithril elven-glass>); given $pugs { $.prow does Shine; Silver $.mast but none(Oar::Shaven, Sail); Light $.lantern := $*Silmaril; Bright $.banner := Flame.bless:{}; when $*Elbereth.gleam { .sail(...); } } }

Further updates of this will be available in the Pugs tree as examples/poetry/pugs_main.p6.
