The Answers

answer 1
Answer 1

“Already with thee! tender is the night,

And haply the Queen-Moon is on her throne

Cluster\'d around by all her starry Fays

But here there is no light,

Save what from heaven is with the breezes blow

Through verdurous glooms and winding mossy ways.”

- KEATS: Ode to a Nightingale

answer 2
Answer 2

“That is no country for old men. The young

In one another\'s arms, birds in the trees

- Those dying generations - at their song,

The salmon-falls, the mackerel-crowded seas,

Fish, flesh, or fowl, commend all summer long

Whatever is begotten, born, and dies.”

YEATS: Sailing to Byzantium

answer 3

Your shadow at morning striding behind 

Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;

I will show you fear in a handful of dust.”

T.S. ELIOT: The Waste Land

And close your eyes with holy dread,

For he on honey-dew hath fed,

And drunk the milk of Paradise.”

Answer 6

“I have forgot much, Cynara! gone with the wind,

Flung roses, roses riotously with the throng,

Dancing, to put thy pale, lost lilies out of mind;

But I was desolate and sick of an old passion,

Yea, all the time, because the dance was long:

I have been faithful to thee, Cynara! in my fashion.”

ERNEST DOWSON: Non sum qualis eram bonae sub regno Cynarae

answer 7
Answer 7

“When God at first made man,

Having a glasse of blessings standing by;

Let us (said he) poure on him all we can:

Let the worlds riches, which dispersed lie,

Contract into a span.”

GEORGE HERBERT: The Pulley

answer 8
Answer 8

“The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ,

Moves on: nor all your Piety nor Wit

Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line,

Nor all your Tears wash out a Word of it.”

EDWARD FITZGERALD: The Rubayat of Omar Kayyam

answer 9
Answer 9

“I will find out where she has gone,

And kiss her lips and take her hands;

And walk among long dappled grass,

And pluck till time and times are done

The silver apples of the moon,

The golden apples of the sun.”

YEATS: The Song of Wandering Aengus

answer 10
Answer 10

“…Into this wilde Abyss,

The Womb of nature and perhaps her Grave,

Of neither Sea, nor Shore, nor Air, nor Fire,

But all these in their pregnant causes mixt

Confus’dly, and which thus must ever fight,

Unless th’Almighty Maker them ordain

His dark materials to create more Worlds…”

MILTON: Paradise Lost

answer 11
Answer 11

“The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning; but the heart of fools is in the house of mirth.”

“The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose.”

ECCLESIASTES

Answer 12

“The woods decay, the woods decay and fall,

The vapors weep their burthen to the ground,

Man comes and tills the field and lies beneath,

And after many a summer dies the swan.”

TENNYSON: Tithonus
