Your Favorite Passage of Poetry

I know there are some poets on the board... and some posters that don't care for poetry at all. That being said, most people seem to have at least one small passage of poetry that they enjoy, so I'd like to hear yours. I'll start with two of my favorites:

I know a search that's useless,
I know a code I don't hunt for,
I know a face that's gone


From Sandburg's You and a Sickle Moon

and

When I died they washed me out of the turret with a hose.

From Jarrell's The Death of the Ball Turret Gunner
