Usage examples for forebode

  1. Not that there was anything in the least terrifying in the strength of the wind- far from it, indeed,- for it was no heavier than a double- reefed topsail breeze, to which the schooner stood up as stiff as a church, but there was a certain indescribable hollowness in the sound of it- that is the only fitting term I can find to apply- that was quite unlike anything that I had heard before, and that somehow seemed, in its weirdness, to indisputably forebode disaster. – The Log of a Privateersman by Harry Collingwood
