    Fire And Ice (robert Frost)

    Some say the world will end in fire Some say in ice But from what I've tasted of desire I hold with those who favor fire But if I had to parish twice I think I know enough of hate To say that for destruction ice Is also great And would suffice

    The Grey

    The Grey   I am the grey, I live in neither night nor day; But in the fine unfocussed line, In between your world and mine. I fear your voice, it impacts me, In other ways you cannot see. Embrace the darkness, I am there, I am in in the cold, beware...

    The Raven By Edgar Allan Poe

    Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary, Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore, While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping, As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door. "'Tis some visitor," I muttered...

    I heard a thousand blended notes,

    While in a grove I sat reclined, In that sweet mood, when pleasant thoughts, Bring sad thoughts to the mind. To her Fair Works did Nature link, The human soul that through me ran, And much it grieved my heart to think, What man has made of man. Through primrose tufts, In that...

    I am the dust in the sunlight,

    I am the ball of the sun. I am the mist of morning, the breath of evening. I am the spark in the stone, the gleam of gold in the metal, the rose and the nightingale drunk with its fragrance. I am the chain of being, the circle of the spheres, the scale of creation, the rise and...

    The Arrow And The Song

    The Arrow and the Song I shot an arrow into the air, It fell to earth, I knew not where; For, so swiftly it flew, the sight Could not follow it in its flight. I breathed a song into the air, It fell to earth, I knew not where; For who has sight so keen and...
