Whale weeps not, D. H. Lawrence

Fragment: `All the whales in the wider deeps, hot are they, as they urge / on and on, and dive beneath the icebergs. /  The right whales, the sperm-whales, the hammer-heads, the killers / there they blow, there they blow, hot wild white breath out of the sea!`

Porphyria`s lover, Robert Browning

Fragment: `The rain set early in tonight, / The sullen wind was soon awake, / It tore the elm-tops down for spite, / And did its worst to vex the lake…`

The Eve of Saint Agnes, John Keats

Fragment: `Ah, bitter chill it was!  / The owl, for all his feathers, was a-cold;  / The hare limp’d trembling through the frozen grass, / And silent was the flock in woolly fold.`

Goblin Market, Christina Rossetti

Fragment: `Morning and evening /  Maids heard the goblins cry: / “Come buy our orchard fruits, / Come buy, come buy!`

Jabberwocky, Lewis Carroll

Fragment: `Twas brillig, and the slithy toves / Did gyre and gimble in the wabe: / All mimsy were the borogoves, / And the mome raths outgrabe`

In a station of the metro, Ezra Pound

`The apparition of these faces in the crowd; / Petals on a wet, black bough.`

How to make a Dadaist poem, Tristan Tzara

`To make a Dadaist poem: Take a newspaper. Take a pair of scissors. Choose an article as long as you are planning to make your poem. Cut out the article. Then cut out each of the words that make up this article and put them in a bag. Shake it gently. Then take out the scraps one after the other in the order in which they left the bag. Copy conscientiously. The poem will be like you. And here are you a writer, infinitely original and endowed with a sensibility that is charming though beyond the understanding of the vulgar.`

A dream within a dream, E. A. Poe

Fragment: `Take this kiss upon the brow!  /And, in parting from you now, / Thus much let me avow- / You are not wrong, who deem / That my days have been a dream;`

Sonnet XVIII, William Shakespeare

Fragment: `Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day? /Thou art more lovely and more temperate: /Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May, /And summer’s lease hath all too short a date.`
