  •      By a route obscure and lonely,
         Haunted by ill angels only,
         Where an Eidolon, named Night,
         On a black throne reigns upright,
         I have reached these lands but newly
         From an ultimate dim Thule
    From a wild weird clime, that lieth, sublime,
             Out of Space — out of Time.

    – Edgar Allen Poe, "Dream-Land" (1844)

    The word is pronounced as two syllables, rhyming, as in Poe's poem, with "newly".
