It's National Poetry Month. Which poet would you like to meet most?
Spend the day with a poet. Take a stroll, enjoy tea in the garden, Have an extravagant dinner or a picnic. The best thing is that you get to talk with this poet.
I'd love to meet Emily Dickinson, who is my muse. But she was so shy during her lifetime, it would not have been easy to meet her! Once she knew me, though, we would have had a most enjoyable meeting, strolling in her garden, playing with her dog, perhaps talking about life and even politics. We might have paused for tea or refreshments, but possibly we wouldn't have taken time for that!
I would love to meet Common, who is very talented with his poetic words. He is not only a rapper, songwriter, performer but an excellent poet.
You sent this old lady to the internet with your reply. I know him best for a song that Common and John Legend wrote,“Glory” for the 2014 film Selma.
Your research was commendable. That is exactly who I was referring to. Thanks for this intriguing question and interesting response.
I'd love to meet Lord Byron and Robert Burns. Would also love to meet Edna St. Vincent Millay.
My choice, this late in the game for me, surprisingly is Sylvia Plath. When I was young I could never relate to her tug, constantly into the wrenching pain she poured out on the pages, I felt when I was young it may be contagious, and I really wanted no part of it's message. Now, in my 50's, I take comfort in her work, and the words she suffered through to write.
" And I
Am the arrow,
The dew that flies
Suicidal, at one with the drive
Into the red
Eye, the cauldron of morning.“
from the poem Ariel, October 12, 1962

My heart you drew in the sand You sealed it with a water brand I thought our love would shirley last Washed up in the wave now passed A place special within my heart A step I take that will further us apart I love you, I loved you so Our love washed away, now I must go

I didn't know April was poetry month. I found it out while I was web surfing and I came across Shel Silverstein's web site. I had forgotten what a great children's author he was. He died at his home in Florida in '99.So I thought maybe some people would like to share a hub they've...

I love learning about poetry. Who is your favourite poet?

Because it is difficult for poets to write a poem with over 800 words it is difficult to get poetry hubs up to the suggested word count standard in order to be classed as "evergreen", and therefore have little opportunity to be considered for 'Hub of the Day' or 'Editor's Choice' awards,...
