And as imagination bodies forth
  The forms of things unknown, the poet's pen
    Turns them to shape and gives to airy nothing
      A local habitation and a name.
        Such tricks has strong imagination
          That if he would but apprehend some joy,
            It comprehends some bringer of that joy;
              Or in the night imagining some fear,
                How easy is a bush supposed a bear?
      - [Imagination]

And being thus frighted swears a prayer or two,
  And sleep's again.

And frame your mind to mirth and merrimnent,

      - [Merriment]

And her immortal part with angels lives.
      - [Soul]

And her sunny locks
  Hang on her temples like a golden fleece.
      - [Hair]

And his big manly voice,
  Turning again toward childish treble, pipes
    And whistles in his sound.
      - [Age]

And how his audit stands, who knows, save Heaven?
      - [Judgment]

And many an old man's sigh, and many a widow's,
  And many an orphan's water-standing eye--
    Men for their sons', wives for their husbands' fate,
      And orphans for their parents' timeless death,--
        Shall rue the hour that ever thou wast born.
      - [Tyranny]

And more such days as these to us befall!
      - [Birthday]

And send him many years of sunshine days!
      - [Birthday]

And so, from hour to hour, we ripe and ripe,
  And then, from hour to hour, we rot and rot;
    And thereby hangs a tale.
      - [Life]
