  1. I need to comment later.

    RG: Okay.

  2. What was I waiting for? I’ll put up William Stafford and Theodore Roethke as my favorites. Though if I found out that Robinson Jeffers’ soul was lodged within me somewhere, I would be happy.

  3. Charles Simic and YES Plath and 5 million more…Poetry does the soul good..A poym a day….keeps the dead souls at bay.
    You either get it…..or you don’t…I do but most of my peeps don’t lol

  4. My favorite poets are T.S. Eliot and Gerard Manley Hopkins.

    Years ago I read a critical analysis of Hopkins’ poetry. The writer said that Hopkins’ “The Wreck of the Deutschland” is the most complete poem in the English language.

    I absolutely love Eliot’s “Four Quartets”.

    Poetry is the language of brilliant people, scoundrels and angels.

  5. Lord Byron is one of my favorites along with Robert Frost, but in my mind none top Edgar Allen Poe
