    Each matin bell, the Baron saith,
Knells us back to a world of death.
          Christabel. Part ii.
5236
    Her face, oh call it fair, not pale!
          Christabel. Part ii.
5237
    Alas! they had been friends in youth;
But whispering tongues can poison truth,
And constancy live in realms above;
And life is thorny, and youth is vain,
And to be wroth with one we love
Doth work like madness in the brain.
          Christabel. Part ii.
5238
    They stood aloof, the scars remaining,—
Like cliffs which had been rent asunder:
A dreary sea now flows between.
          Christabel. Part ii.
5239
    Perhaps ’t is pretty to force together
Thoughts so all unlike each other;
To mutter and mock a broken charm,
To dally with wrong that does no harm.
          Christabel. Conclusion to Part ii.

    In Xanadu did Kubla Khan
A stately pleasure-dome decree,
Where Alph, the sacred river, ran
Through caverns measureless to man
  Down to a sunless sea.
          Kubla Khan.
5241
    Ancestral voices prophesying war.
          Kubla Khan.
5242
    A damsel with a dulcimer
In a vision once I saw:
It was an Abyssinian maid,
And on her dulcimer she played,
Singing of Mount Abora.
          Kubla Khan.
5243
    For he on honey-dew hath fed,
And drunk the milk of Paradise.
          Kubla Khan.
5244
    Ere sin could blight or sorrow fade,
  Death came with friendly care;
The opening bud to heaven conveyed,
  And bade it blossom there.
          Epitaph on an Infant.
