Can an adjective come before a pronoun in english?

In everyday modern English, probably not; but it happens in a very famous 17th century speech: "Really I think that the poorest he that is in England has a life to live as the greatest he". I would not expect to see this in modern writing except perhaps in poetry.

You also come across it in expressions such as "Silly me!", though this is a different kind of construction. Similar is "Oh, lonesome me", which occurs in song and may qualify as poetry...
