    Though much is taken, much abides; and though
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are;
    One equal temper of heroic hearts,
    Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
    To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.”

    ― Alfred Tennyson

    My favourite among many has to be Wallace Stevens followed closely by Ted Hughes, William Carlos Williams, Elizabeth Bishop and loads more. I tend to go for the moderns but also have great respect for the history of poetry. I have written a few hubs, both factual and creative.
    I read a lot of poetry! Having to select a favourite is very difficult!
