In poetry:

SONG. BY A MAN -- AFFETTUOSO.
Virtue, on herself relying,
Ev'ry passion hush'd to rest, Loses ev'ry pain of dying
In the hopes of being blest.
"Threnodia Augustalis: Overture - A Solemn Dirge" by Oliver Goldsmith
CHORUS. -- AFFETTUOSO. -- LARGO.
Ye shady walks, ye waving greens,
Ye nodding towers, ye fairy scenes --
Let all your echoes now deplore That she who form'd your beauties is no more.
"Threnodia Augustalis: Overture - Pastorale" by Oliver Goldsmith
No dainty dolce affettuoso I;
Bearded, sun-burnt, gray-neck'd, forbidding, I have arrived,
To be wrestled with as I pass, for the solid prizes of the universe;
For such I afford whoever can persevere to win them.
"Starting From Paumanok" by Walt Whitman
