- Leo Marks's poem "The Life That I Have", memorably used in the film Odette, is an extended example of diacope:
- The life that I have
- Is all that I have
- And the life that I have
- Is yours.
- The love that I have
- Of the life that I have
- Is yours and yours and yours.
- A sleep I shall have
- A rest I shall have
- Yet death will be but a pause.
- For the peace of my years
- In the long green grass
- Will be yours and yours and yours.
The first line in the poem not to deploy diacope is the one about death being "a pause."
- "In times like these, it helps to recall that there have always been times like these." — Paul Harvey. This is also an example of an epanalepsis.
