in order of first line

A drop fell on the apple tree

All the words that I utter, 

I live in the Twentieth Century

My heart leaps up when I behold

Never seek to tell thy love

Remember me when I am gone away

There be none of Beauty's daughters

Trickle, drops! my blue veins leaving!

Upon a poet’s page I wrote

We shall not cease from exploration

When I have fears that I may cease to be

When my love swears that she is made of truth
