    ME!!  lol.  Seriously though I love 'The Raven' by Edgar Allen Poe.  I even like The Simpsons rendition in one of the Treehouse of horror episodes.

    I don't have a particular favourite poet, in fact the author of the poem doesn't really matter to me.  It is their use of words and the feelings that they convey that excite my whole being. I know some quite unknown poets who have a very, very special way with words.

    My favorite poet is Charles Bukowski.  Sometimes I have a little trouble with his lines, catching the rhythm, but his stuff is fantastic.
