- plaintive whine
- "Fawn: to exhibit affection or attempt to please as a dog does by wagging its tail whining or cringing."
- Katydids were lamenting fall's approach.
- How the cattle moan! The herds mill about because they have no pasture; even the flocks of sheep are suffering.
- How I would love your deep resounding the primal chasm's muffled voice how in your vesper calm rejoice and in your sudden reckless bounding!
- The note and rose to a whine.
