Key Line(s)PoetPoem
Thou wast not born for death, immortal Bird!
In Xanadu did Kubla Khan / A stately pleasure-dome decree
Where are the songs of spring? Ay, where are they? / Think not of them, thou hast thy music too
Come live with me and be my love / And we will all the pleasures prove
Tyger! Tyger! burning bright / In the forests of the night
That’s my last Duchess painted on the wall / Looking as if she were alive.
'You must sit down,' says Love, 'and taste my meat.' / So I did sit and eat.
Because I could not stop for death / He kindly stopped for me.
An aged thrush, frail, gaunt, and small / In blast-beruffled plume
Had we but world enough and time / This coyness, lady, were no crime.
Key Line(s)PoetPoem
That time of year thou mayst in me behold / When yellow leaves, or none, or few, do hang
It little profits that an idle king / By this still hearth, among these barren crags
I saw pale kings and princes too / Pale warriors, death-pale were they all; / They cried—‘La Belle Dame sans Merci / Thee hath in thrall!'
Weep no more, woeful shepherds, weep no more / For Lycidas, your sorrow, is not dead
Let me not to the marriage of true minds / Admit impediments.
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold
I wander thro' each charter'd street / Near where the charter'd Thames does flow
O wild West Wind, thou breath of Autumn's being
GO, lovely Rose— / Tell her that wastes her time and me
I have measured out my life with coffee spoons
