Unusual Request: Favorite Poets
In between posting on management, ethics, politics, economics, life, and signage, it makes sense to have a post on poetry.
I love poetry. Still have memories of elementary school when we were required to memorize and recite poems in front of the class. Some classmates would meet the minimum number of lines and then stop. As a result, I never heard anyone complete "The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere."
I also recall quoting Longfellow once and getting a sneer from an English major who thought the old guy was over the hill and that a few lines from "Howl" would have been much more sophisticated.
Anyway, some poets I've especially enjoyed are Yeats, Wordsworth, Wylie, Sandburg, Longfellow, Larkin, Auden, Robert Browning, Hughes, and Kipling.
Which ones do you like?
