    Some are complete, some are parts of bigger poems:

    Come away, O human child!

    to the waters and the wild

    with a faery, hand in hand,

    for the world's more full of weeping

    than you can understand...

    - W. B. Yeats

    Though they go mad they shall be sane.

    Though they sink through the sea, they shall rise again.

    Though lovers be lost, love shall not,

    And death shall have no dominion.

    - Dylan Thomas

    Move out man! Life is fleeting by.

    Do something worthwhile, before you die.

    Leave behind a work sublime,

    that will outlive you and time.

    - Alfred A. Montepert

    1. Do more than exist, live.

    2. Do more than touch, feel.

    3. Do more than look, observe.

    4. Do more than read, absorb.

    5. Do more than hear, listen.

    6. Do more than listen, understand.

    7. Do more than think, ponder.

    8. Do more than talk, say something.

    - John H. Rhoades

    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.

    - Dylan Thomas

    I believe that if I should die,

    and you were to walk near my grave,

    from the very depths of the earth

    I would hear your footsteps.

    - Benito Perez Galdos

    Music I heard with you was more than music,

    And bread I broke with you was more than bread.

    Now that I am without you, all is so desolate;

    And all that once was so beautiful is dead.

    - Conrad Aiken "Bread and Music"

    The holiest of all holidays are those

    Kept by ourselves in silence and apart;

    The secret anniversaries of the heart.

    - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

    This is the way the world ends

    Not with a bang but a whimper.

    - T. S. Eliot "The Hollow Men"

    "I have a spelling checker

    It came with my PC;

    It plainly marks four my revue

    Mistakes I cannot sea.

    I've run this poem threw it,

    I'm sure your pleased too no,

    Its letter perfect in it's weigh,

    My checker tolled me sew."

    - Janet Minor

    Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,

    Creeps in this petty pace from day to day

    To the last syllable of recorded time,

    And all our yesterdays have lighted fools

    The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!

    Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player

    That struts and frets his hour upon the stage

    And then is heard no more: it is a tale

    Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,

    Signifying nothing.

    - William Shakespeare, spoken by Macbeth, Macbeth,(Act V, scene v)

    Then read from the treasured volume

    The poem of thy choice,

    And lend to the rhyme of the poet

    The beauty of thy voice.

    - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

    I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind.

    Some come from ahead and some come from behind.

    But I've bought a big bat. I'm all ready you see.

    Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!

    - Dr. Seuss

    Hope you enjoyed!!!

    Richard Corey by Edwin Arlington Robinson is one of my favorites.

    "Whenever Richard Corey went down town/ We people on the pavement looked at him/ He was a gentleman from sole to crown/ Clean favored and imperially slim/ And he was always human when he talked/ But still he fluttered pulses when he said 'good morning'/ And he glittered when he walked/ And he was rich/ Yes, richer than a king/ And admirably schooled in every grace/ In fine, he was everything to make us wish that we were in his place/ So one we worked and waited for the light/ Went without the meat and cursed the bread/ and Richard Corey/ One calm summer night/ Went home and put a bullet through his head"

    I WHISPERED, 'I am too young,'

    And then, 'I am old enough';

    Wherefore I threw a penny

    To find out if I might love.

    'Go and love, go and love, young man,

    If the lady be young and fair.'

    Ah, penny, brown penny, brown penny,

    I am looped in the loops of her hair.

    O love is the crooked thing,

    There is nobody wise enough

    To find out all that is in it,

    For he would be thinking of love

    Till the stars had run away

    And the shadows eaten the moon.

    Ah, penny, brown penny, brown penny,

    One cannot begin it too soon.

    William Butler Yeats
