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...

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.

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...

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...

Lyrical Poetry - There are plenty of debates over if lyrics are considered 'poetry'. Personally…I think they are. I believe song lyrics, just like poetry, have the ability to evoke a wide range of emotions…and the ability to set, or change our mood. Joy or sadness... to...
