First line(s)PoetName of the Poem
Oh! young Lochinvar is come out of the West
Because I could not stop for Death - He kindly stopped for me –
When I consider how my light is spent, Ere half my days, in this dark world and wide
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 met a traveller from an antique land, who said: 'Two vast and trunkless legs of stone stand in the desert . . . '
In Xanadu did Kubla Khan a stately pleasure-dome decree
You do not do, you do not do any more, black shoe in which I have lived like a foot
''Will you walk into my parlour?' said the Spider to the Fly.
God of our fathers, known of old, Lord of our far-flung battle-line
Twas brillig, and the slithy toves did gyre and gimble in the wabe
On either side the river lie, long fields of barley and of rye, that clothe the wold and meet the sky
It was many and many a year ago, in a kingdom by the sea...
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood
'I cannot go to school today,' said little Peggy Ann McKay.
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.
She walks in beauty, like the night , like the night, of cloudless climes and starry skies
Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? Thou art more lovely and more temperate.
In Flanders fields the poppies blow, between the crosses, row on row
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I wandered lonely as a cloud, that floats on high o'er vales and hills
Tyger! Tyger! burning bright. In the forests of the night.
Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
Do not stand at my grave and weep; I am not there, I do not sleep.
