      Lyriaposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      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.

    I love them, too, UW!

    Wordsworth: "Tintern Abbey" and "Composed upon Westminster Bridge"

    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. smile

    Rilke will always be at the heart of my heart, however.
