Only reapers, reaping early In among the bearded barley, Hear a song that echoes cheerly From the river winding clearly, Down to towered Camelot.
On either side the river lie Long fields of barley and of rye, That clothe the wold and meet the sky; And through the field the road runs by To many-towered Camelot.Tennyson

Corn rigs, an' barley rigs, An'corn rigs are bonie: I'll ne'er forget that happy night, Amang the rigs wi'Annie.Robert Burns
We are na fou, we're nae that fou, But just a drappie in our e'e; The cock may craw, the day may daw, And ay we'll taste the barley bree.Robert Burns
Well, God knows he don't need any brains to buck barley bags. But don't you try to put nothing over, Milton. I got my eye on you.john steinbeck
Now the Faith is old and the Devil is bold, Exceedingly bold indeed; And the masses of doubt that are floating about Would smother a mortal creed. But we that sit in a sturdy youth, And still can drink strong ale, Oh let us put it away to infallible truth, That always shall prevail. ? [semi-chorus:] And thank the Lord For the temporal sword, And howling heretics too; And all good things Our Christendom brings, But especially barley brew!hilaire belloc
One of the greatest markets in England for barley.
But the worst slaughter, though with least hullabaloo Suffered hens. To the hencoop young Chook grimly flew, With a noose from their perches he fishes out thence Cockerils, and the rough-feathered, and big-crested hens. He each bird in turn throttled and in one heap stacked, Perfect poultry, which never for pearl barley lacked.
