What's My Line 2 (Return)

1. Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,

2 . I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness,
starving hysterical naked,
dragging themselves through the negro streets at dawn,

3 . Oh, somewhere in this favored land the sun is shining bright;
The band is playing somewhere, and somewhere hearts are light,
And somewhere men are laughing, and somewhere children shout;

4 . My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!'
Nothing beside remains.
Round the decay of that colossal wreck,
Boundless and bare,

5. Fee-fi-fo-fum
I smell the blood of an Englishman.
Be he alive or be he dead,

6. Between the dark and the daylight,
When the night is beginning to lower,
Comes a pause in the day's occupations,

7. A Book of Verses underneath the Bough,
A Jug of Wine, a Loaf of Bread, and Thou
Beside me singing in the Wilderness,

8. God gave Noah the rainbow sign, no more water,

9. Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,

10. Afoot and light-hearted, I take to the open road,
Healthy, free, the world before me,

11. A man's reach must exceed his grasp,

12. Because I could not stop for Death,

13. It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:

14. Haply I think on thee,_and then my state
(Like to the lark at break of day raising
from sullen earth) sings hymns at the heaven's gate.

15. Half a league, half a league,
Half a league onward,
All in the valley of Death,

16. Therefore, send not to know
For whom the bell tolls,
