Happy New Year to all!
We're going to start out the new year with a little fun. Get out your pencils and close your books; it's time for a poetry quiz. I'll give you a line or phrase from a poem and you have to come up with the author. For extra credit, name the poem from which it comes. They sound so familiar, but... (Hint, two of these are by the same poet.)
Answers will be given next week. Good luck!
1. Drink to me only with thine eyes,/And I will pledge with mine;
2. Gather ye rosebuds while ye may
3. Tiger! tiger! burning bright/In the forests of the night
4. To the glory that was Greece,/And the grandeur that was Rome
5. If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?
6. Oh, to be in England/Now that April's there
7. God's in his heaven-/All's right with the world!
