I've known rivers: I've known rivers ancient as the world and older than the flow of human blood in human veins.
I have eaten the plums that were in the icebox
On either side the river lie, long fields of barley and of rye, that clothe the wold and meet the sky
The sea is calm to-night. The tide is full, the moon lies fair upon the straits
Tyger! Tyger! burning bright. In the forests of the night.
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
It was many and many a year ago, in a kingdom by the sea...

''Will you walk into my parlour?' said the Spider to the Fly.
In Flanders fields the poppies blow, between the crosses, row on row
When I consider how my light is spent, Ere half my days, in this dark world and wide

She walks in beauty, like the night , like the night, of cloudless climes and starry skies
Oh! young Lochinvar is come out of the West
I celebrate myself, and sing myself, And what I assume you shall assume
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.
Because I could not stop for Death - He kindly stopped for me –
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
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood
I wandered lonely as a cloud, that floats on high o'er vales and hills
Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? Thou art more lovely and more temperate.
'I cannot go to school today,' said little Peggy Ann McKay.
