Poetry

More than one person has posted poetry today, and I seem to be in a mood for it.

So, recommend poetry to me. Who's your favourite poet? What should I read that I haven't?

(My favourite, by the by, is Yeats.)

Alternatively, write me a poem! I'll save you from having to read any of mine, though.

My favourite...
So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart be still as loving,
And the moon be still as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
And the soul outwears the breast,
And the heart must pause to breathe,
And love itself have rest.

Though the night was made for loving,
And the day returns too soon,
Yet we'll go no more a-roving
By the light of the moon.

-- George Gordon, Lord Byron
