    Who's Poetry Moves You?

              I am moved by the simplest poetry and verses, yet which have so much meaning attached to them.   For me it is Mark Twain.    He had a way of inflecting so much passion and knowledge into his words...

    Myself

    I know it's sad but true. After that it's Percy Bysshe Shelley, Dylan Thomas, Charles Bukowski, Robert Frost, Leonard Cohen, Shakespeare and my brother (but don't ever tell him that)

    Plath

    I know it is very cliche, but I love Sylvia Plath. Her writing is what got me interested in poetry in the first place. It is very readable to the casual eye, but it has a ton of hidden meaning just waiting for a more observant reader to search it out. I love to find that kind of...

    Wilfred Owen

    The first time I read one of Wilfred Owen's poems, I fell in love with his writing. They're not the happiest poems. Not in the least. They're all about war and death and suffering. His images are so strong and so meaningful. I'd literally disect his poems just for fun. I find...

    Edgar Guest

    His work may be a "down-home" type with his country and family-oriented themes but he was right on the money as far as what matters most.

    Discovery

    Julia Butterfly Hill. She's an activist--she once lived in a tree for weeks. I found her work posted in the American Visionary Art Museum. It was love at first sight. Her poems just wrapped me up and drew me in. A year later, I discovered Sylvia Plath. I don't remember what...

    The Dark Romantic Himself

    That's right, I'm a Poe girl. I just love his poems, and I can get into them. I can paint images of his words in my mind. I have always loved The Tell-Tale Heart, The Raven, The Black Cat, Eldorado, and so much more. His poems are amazing and my friends and I love him.  ...

    A Touch of Frost

      Robert Frost is elegant in his direct simplicity.  With a minimalist style evocative of the rural New England land scape, Frost was a masterful story teller, a riveting painter of images. Frost was fearless. He addressed life, death, and the loneliness that befalls...

    I don't really have a favorite high school memory. The reason i dont have one is because i hated going to school. And it wasn't the same reasons like most teenagers.
