I met a traveller from an antique land, who said: 'Two vast and trunkless legs of stone stand in the desert . . . '
Because I could not stop for Death - He kindly stopped for me –
'I cannot go to school today,' said little Peggy Ann McKay.
You do not do, you do not do any more, black shoe in which I have lived like a foot
She walks in beauty, like the night , like the night, of cloudless climes and starry skies
It was many and many a year ago, in a kingdom by the sea...
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I celebrate myself, and sing myself, And what I assume you shall assume
The sea is calm to-night. The tide is full, the moon lies fair upon the straits
I have eaten the plums that were in the icebox
I've known rivers: I've known rivers ancient as the world and older than the flow of human blood in human veins.
God of our fathers, known of old, Lord of our far-flung battle-line
Tyger! Tyger! burning bright. In the forests of the night.
Oh! young Lochinvar is come out of the West

When I consider how my light is spent, Ere half my days, in this dark world and wide
I wandered lonely as a cloud, that floats on high o'er vales and hills
Do not stand at my grave and weep; I am not there, I do not sleep.
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood
On either side the river lie, long fields of barley and of rye, that clothe the wold and meet the sky
In Xanadu did Kubla Khan a stately pleasure-dome decree
