The Five Poem Quiz

These are lines from five (favourite) poems. Can you identify the poet or the piece? (And feel free to post your own favourite lines in the comments)

1. Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,


2. In the room the women come and go
Talking of Michelangelo.


3. Last scene of all that ends this strange, eventful history,
is second childishness and mere oblivion.
I am sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.


4. This is what you shall do; Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, 


5. You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.
