Shelley and Coleridge are my favourites.
Christina Rossetti, Pablo Neruda and Walter de la Mare are my favourites.
I just read 3 books by Emily Byrnes. I’m not a huge fan of poetry but these were really good. And they are on kindle unlimited
I’m more of a beat poetry kind of person, so Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, and William Carlos Williams just to name a few. 🙂 The latter wasn’t really a beat poet himself, but he did inspire them.
Walt Whitman and Allen Ginsberg. Dylan Thomas. And Jim Morrison.
Yes! Jim Morrison!
TS Eliot. Sylvia Plath. Robert Frost.
Pablo Neruda, Langston Hughes
EDGAR ALLEN POE ! PERIOD. ?
Elizabeth Barrett Browning,Robert Service,there are hundreds of them
Edgar Allan Poe, ???.. no one else comes close
Oscar Wilde, Robert Frost
Robert Frost, Emily Dickenson
Edgar Allen Poe and Walt Whitman.
Mary Oliver and John Betjeman
Khalil Gibran and Rumi
Baudelaire, Rilke, Richard Wilber, Poe, Goethe, Pessoa, T.S.Eliot, Keats, Emily Dickenson, Olena Kalytiak Davis…
Claude McKay, Keats, Maya Angelou
Edgan Allan Poe.
I think poems are like novels, it depends on what you’re into. Whats a genre that you enjoy? For example, if you like world views Maya Angelou is a prime example and if you like something darker and more intense than Edgar Allan Poe is a good place to start. And both are amazing in their own right
Langston Hughes , Rumi,and Rupi Kaur
Gary Snyder, Edna St. Vincent Millay
Billy Collins, Mary Oliver, Sharon Olds & Nikki Giovanni.
TS Eliot (Four Quartets and Prufrock and Other Observations)
@Nicole, hands down.
Depends on what you are interested in. I love hugo williams for example but hes not for everybody and my partner loves amanda Lovelace. Just read loads n perhaps look for local poets too
I like T.S. Eliot, Basho and Omar Khayyam
I love the Lucy poems by william wordsworth
There must be something in the air at the moment. Just talking about this over on another page.
I love John Betjeman’s poetry. A lot of it is fun and light-hearted. A great expample being Slough (will mean more to the English in the group) which I still remember some of from learning it at school.
A.Lorde is my go to.
Charles Bukowski. He is raw, gritty, and packed full of emotion.
John Gartland will knock your socks off!!
Rupi Kaur, Anne Sexton
Noor Unnahi smd Stuart Ross. Anne Sexton. Jaime Forsythe. Karen Connelly.
Rainer maria Rilke. I still own a small book with some of his poems <3
I like Maya Angelou, but when I was younger was into the beat generation, Allen Ginsberg.
I love Maya Angelo, Emily Dickinson, and Robert Frost
Depression and other magic tricks
Our numbered days
The sun and her flowers
Milk and honey
These r my fav books u will love them
Walt whitman and Mevlana Rumi.
Roger McGough is one of my favourites. Also John Cooper Clarke.
David Lee. They are original and funny. One book is called the Porcine Canticles and another is News from Down to the Cafe, which I have on audio. It’s wonderful to listen to him read them. I don’t like the background music on this recording, but it will give you an idea: https://youtu.be/RFOB9v1qPCQ
EE Cummings is my personal favourite.
Rupi Kaur, Mary Oliver, Walt Whitman
Yes EE Cummings I carry your heart.
