Kicking Off Poetry Month

April 2nd, 2011 Poets and Thoughts

April is Poetry Month so I thought that during the entire month of April I would post a few of my favorite poems and other tidbits about poetry. I would love to hear what some of your favorite poems/poets might be. So hear goes…

One of my favorite poems is by Robert Frost…

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I marked the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

What are some of your favorite poems?  Please share, maybe at the end of April if we can gather up a good enough sharing of poems, poets and thoughts I will put all participants in a drawing for a little surprise!  Just leave a comment with some of your favs!
