Anyone out there enjoy poetry? Â I've been a poetry reader pretty much all my life. Â I can't write poetry worth crap, but love to read good poems. Â Currently re-reading some Byron. Â I just can't get over his "Darkness." Â Gives me shivers. Â Some of the imagery is really disturbing, but glorious all the same. Â Â http://home.t-online.de/home/Dr.Stri...n_darkness.htm Also re-reading some favorites from Amy Lowell: http://alt.venus.co.uk/weed/writings/poems/alp.htm My newest discovery is Li-Young Lee. Â Romantic, mystic, nostalgic. Â I've got one of his collections. Â Have just ordered the rest from Amazon. http://www.indiana.edu/~primate/lee.html http://www.bigbadcat.com/zola/lyl.html http://www.eng.fju.edu.tw/English_Li.../us_poetry/Li/ I'm always on the look-out for great poetry, classic and contemporary. Â Anyone out there have favorites to share?
