Either T.S. Eliot or Wallace Stevens

I love the metaphysical poets John Donne and Andrew Marvell, and more recent poets – Wilfred Owen, Dylan Thomas, Sylvia Plath and Philip Larkin.
Nezar Qabbani, Pablo Neruda, and Carl Sandburg
John Donne, Robert Frost, John Milton, Sylvia Plath… and many more… Lol
I’m a kid at heart. Shel Silverstein.
Poet & songwriter too! Who can forget “Sylvia’s Mother” and “A Boy Named Sue”, just to name a few
And of course..”.Tie a yellow ribbon round the ole oak tree”..

IS THAT ALL THERE IS?
“Is that all there is? Is that all there is? If that’s all there is my friends, then let’s keep dancing. Let’s break out the booze and have a ball If that’s all there is.”
Peggy Lee hit song. Song was written by Mike Stoller.
Inspired by THOMAS MANN’S short story, “Disillusionment”
A prelude to suicide (?) once you suddenly realize ” that’s all there is”.
Another relevant song: “Cry Me A River”
Tossup: Carl Sandburg or William Carlos Williams
Well, if we are talking about poet – musicians I would add Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen and Joni Mitchell.
