    If you could choose anyone poet in the whole world (dead or alive) to be with for a day who...

    would it be? Why?

    I'll cheat, two:
    John Donne
    Gerard Manly Hopkins
    Why, who could not be enthralled by:
    Go and catch a falling star,
    Get with child a mandrake root,
    Tell me where all past years are,
    And who cleft the devil's foot,
    Teach me to hear mermaids singing,
    And to fend off envy's stinging,
    And which wind,
    Serves to advance an honest mind.
    Or how about an almost Buddhist view of beauty from the Jesuit, Hopkins, sorry I can't remember much, or quite correctly, but it reads along the lines:
    How meet beauty
    Merely meet it,
    Then let it be,
    Let that thing go.
    If pushed, I'd go for Donne, well now I would, but tomorrow, it may be Hopkins:-)

    Emily Dickinson - because I would love to know if she ever considered that her words would someday serve as a window into such a beautiful, sensitive, wise, and compassionate soul.

    I would want to be Emily Dickinson, or Anne Sexton, or Sylvia Plath
