Poetry is a thing of beauty and we all know a thing if beauty.....yes I can practically hear that chorus....is a joy for ever. Keats and Tennyson seem missing here!
they are mos welcome fair lady
Thank you! Gracious of you!
Dedicating Wild night Wild nights, Were I with thee by Emily Dickenson to this beautiful thread!
Criminal of us to have left out Shelley and this one, in particular, is so intense!
I like poetry I think of it as writing music or about my life.

a true master of the wordsmith Shakespeare must be noted but all in all my favorite poet right now is jewel I have a book of her work a knight without armor and am enamored with her prose and skill <br />
I am a amateur myself with some work on my profile
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.

i eat poetry too
I'm a fan of Yeats myself.

Can't ignore the contributions by Tagore in Unspoken Love & Umar Khaiyaam's masterpieces.<br />
Come, fill the Cup, and in the fire of Spring<br />
Your Winter garment of Repentance fling:<br />
The Bird of Time has but a little way<br />
To flutter--and the Bird is on the Wing.<br />
