What's Your Favorite Line Of Poetry?

"My words echo, thus, in your mind." —T. S. Eliot

Some lines of poetry are so powerful or speak to you so personally that they stick in your mind long after you've finished reading.

Like, "I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow."

From Theodore Roethke's "The Waking."

Or "'Hope' is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul - and sings the tunes without the words - and never stops at all."

From Emily Dickinson's "Hope" is the thing with feathers."
