  1. Loving this verse, I'm sure many of us bookish types will identify with it.

    Whilst not a lover of poetry, I prefer it read to me and not by me, I do love the cat poems of TS Eliot.

    1. Hi Tracy, Thanks! I'm a very finicky poetry reader as well, but I do love it read to me too! Actually, I'm a fan of being read to in general. :) Thanks for stopping by! ~ F

  2. Trust me, you don't want me writing poetry.
    I follow a couple poets here online that are really good - Pat Hatt, Ella, Yvonne Lewis, Truedessa, Hank...

  3. I'm trying to think of any poetry that I've read recently, and I have to admit it's been quite a while! But I do enjoy it and wish I could write it :)

  4. I write some poetry and read a lot of it. There are some wonderful children's poets I follow, but if I had to choose favorites, I would mention Amy Ludwig VanDerwater and Joyce Sidman.

  6. What a lovely poem. My first published work was actually a poem. My 8th grade teacher sent my poem Stars to a high school anthology and it was published in Young America Sings. Even though that was year ago, I still have a copy of the book. Haven't tried poetry lately. Love to read it.

  8. I'm a bit childish when it comes to poetry. I adore Dr Seuss and "Twas the Night Before Christmas"! :)

  10. I wouldn't say that I know poetry very well at all but I do enjoy it. I've fallen in love with Shakespeare over the past couple of years so I think I'd choose him as my favorite.

  11. Love that word stew. :)

    I read a lot more poetry in high school: T.S. Eliot, Robinson Jeffers, Christina Rossetti. I wrote a lot more poetry in high school, too. :)

  13. I wrote some poetry while at school, but I don’t think any of it was very good. I like something with a little mystery or intrigue. The listeners by Walter de la Mare always makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up – that for me signifies a good poem. ;-)

  15. When I was 12 or 13, I started a book of poetry and wrote it all the way through college. Those are some bad poems, but at least it started me writing!

  19. I admire poets. However, I am not a poet in any way. Seriously, that's why I admire poets so much. My favorite poet is Dorothy Parker. I love her sarcasm and her poems are easy for me to understand. I get sarcasm.

  21. I love anyone who can be considered to be a Romantic. :)
    And I love lots of Czech poets, but I'm not sure how many of them have been translated into English. I especially love Jan Skacel. :)

  22. I have often said, my heart belongs to stories but my soul belongs to poetry. Yes, I write poetry and I love to read it. Robert Frost and Edgar Allan Poe are two of my all time favorites, along with the Scottish Romance poets.
