What is everyone's favorite poem(s)?
I'm just interested in finding a few good pieces for something. :)

That's a dangerous question:
There's my Audens:
Funeral Blues (the third stanza gets me every time)
As I Walked Out One Evening
I like some Coleridge, but the titles elude me: I'll repost when I find 'em? (I have a collection hanging about somewhere)
I haven't read much Ginsberg, but I like the few I've read:
A Supermarket In California (awesome imagery meta-writing)
I like Frost, though in truth, the Road not Taken is not my favorite of his:
Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening (probably would be my favorite)
Some of his others are cool too, but don't know if they make the favorite list.
All are available full text through google. ;)

My favorite writers of poetry are Federico Garcia Lorca (God! he was genius!), and Edna St. Vincent Millay.
I haven't sat down and enjoyed poetry in a long while. What comes to mind at this moment is:
Millay: Renascence, The Suicide, and Ashes of Life. Especially Ashes of Life - it's that last line!! :'(
Lorca: anything.:love: But special wonderfuls are the Ode to Walt Whitman, and the Llanto por Ignacio Sanchez Mejias.
