I love poetry it's a way to express your most inner thoughts the best way in fact.
I'm a fan of Yeats myself.
i eat poetry too
thy eternal beauty shall not fade nor lose possession of the fair thou ownst <br />
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.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I like poetry I think of it as writing music or about my life.
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!
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 />
