Many stories start in medias res and jump about chronologically. (“In medias res” usually describes a narrative that begins somewhere in the middle of a story-- usually at some crucial point in the action.)

The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe : The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe 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, As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door. "'Tis some visitor," I muttered, "tapping at my chamber door- Only this, and nothing more." Want more?

He said to his friend, "If the British marchBy land or sea from the town to-night,Hang a lantern aloft in the belfry archOf the North Church tower as a signal light,--One if by land, and two if by sea;And I on the opposite shore will be,Ready to ride and spread the alarmThrough every Middlesex village and farm,For the country folk to be up and to arm."

Housman : To an Athlete Dying Young by A.E. Housman To-day, the road all runners come,Shoulder-high we bring you home,And set you at your threshold down,Townsman of a stiller town. Smart lad, to slip betimes awayFrom fields were glory does not stayAnd early though the laurel growsIt withers quicker than the rose. The speaker says the boy is smart to “slip away” (die) young Because no one can be champion forever, it’s better to die while still on top than to grow old and be forgotten.

Or does it explode? One Inch Tall by Shel Silverstein : One Inch Tall by Shel Silverstein If you were only one inch tall, you'd ride a worm to school. The teardrop of a crying ant would be your swimming pool. A crumb of cake would be a feast And last you seven days at least, A flea would be a frightening beast If you were one inch tall.
