The Poets' Tree April 2005

Wednesday, July 25, 2007
Can you identify the poem for or poet of these lines? The answers are on the back.
· I have measured out my life in coffee spoons.

· Water, water everywhere but not a drop to drink

· One could do worse than be a swinger of birches

· The road was a ribbon of moonlight
Over a purple moor

· One if by land and two if by sea

· The mirror cracked from side to side

· Nevermore!

· They danced by the light of the moon
