Who's your favorite poet of all time? I choose Thomas Hardy.
My favorite: Samuel Taylor Coleridge, especially the Ancient Mariner. #2 would be Shakespeare - the Sonnets.
Eugh - I have to study The Return of the Native for school and I can't stand it. I would have to say my favourite poets are John Clare, Rudyard Kipling and Philip Larkin.
Tough question......I'de guess i'de have to say Seamus Heany.
I think I killed the thread Sorry!
I love Seamus Heany.
Walter Benton...A poet of passion and pain, love and despair..
Thanks for introducing me to him, Larry!
William Wordsworth and Robert Burns...I'm a Romantic
I love them, too, UW!Wordsworth: "Tintern Abbey" and "Composed upon Westminster Bridge"Burns: "My Heart's in the Highlands"My favorite English romantic is John Keats.
Too many to name all, but: Rilke, Shelley, Levine, Kizer, Harjo, Ginsberg....even Shakespeare as a poet. I'm now actually reading Neruda due to someone on Hubpages. Rilke will always be at the heart of my heart, however.
Edgar Allen Poe with Emily Dickenson coming up second
for me it has to Akhmatova, then Bukowski, then Montague and then about 50 others that really make an impact on me... so little time so much poetry...
Ah, Akhmatova! Her Holocaust poem with the "black milk."
Ranier Maria Rilke ~~ love his work.John Keats~so many more
Can't get it down to only one. My top three...Edgar Allan Poe, Robert Frost, Robert W. Service
political poet, Dalai lama, philosopherI like Pablo Nerudas poems
Miss Emily Dickinson
