    The lines surrounded by boxes are the only ones I can pick. If it is not surrounded by a box it is not an option and just part of the excerpt..

    ok well this is going to be my best answer for your solution here for you Metaphysical conceits are expansive metaphors marked by paradox, wit, symbolism, double meanings, analytical tone, and logical reasoning. However, the complexity and form of metaphysical conceits is difficult to understand just by description. John Donne, who is considered the first metaphysical poet, created text book example of a metaphysical conceit in the second half of "A Valediction: Forbidding Mourning" : Our two souls therefore, which are one, Though I must go, endure not yet A breach, but an expansion, Like gold to airy thinness beat. If they be two, they are two so As stiff twin compasses are two; Thy soul, the fixed foot, makes no show To move, but doth, if th' other do. And though it in the center sit, Yet when the other far doth roam, It leans and hearkens after it, And grows erect, as that comes home
