3.Pretty women wonder where my secret lies. I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
4.But if each day, each hour, you feel that you are destined for me with implacable sweetness,
5.Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary, Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
6.But O heart! heart! heart! O the bleeding drops of red, Where on the deck my Captain lies, Fallen cold and dead.
7.Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
8.To keep your marriage brimming With love in the loving cup, Whenever you’re wrong, admit it; Whenever you’re right, shut up.
9.f the moon smiled, she would resemble you. You leave the same impression Of something beautiful, but annihilating.
