Henry Wadsworth Longfellow also mentioned it in a well-known poem, Paul Revere's Ride:

It was twelve by the village clock
When he crossed the bridge into Medford town.
He heard the crowing of the cock,
And the barking of the farmer's dog,
And felt the damp of the river-fog,
That rises when the sun goes down.
