The Fifty Most Quoted Lines of Poetry

The usual caveats abound -- it had to be full lines, and google data are, and this is a technical term, bananas -- but still a cute little statisticle. (You know, like listicle, but with statistics?)

If I were to write a list of poems I hate most, Trees would top the list, and then there would be several empty spaces, and then something by that one hippie poet whose name escapes me, maybe Gary something? Snyder! But then I don't really hate his stuff, it just makes me tired and embarrassed. I'll have to think on my hatreds.
