Nice font, huh? Yea, I kinda like it myself. Welcome to my poetry section! There's nothing really elaborate about this area of my site. It's just several poems that I really like (with special emphasis put on my favorite, Auden), that I decided to let y'all read. I guess it's kind of silly to show a bunch of Other Peoples poems, but so what? What I'm trying to do here is share with everyone some things that I really enjoy, and these poems are a part of that.

Many of these poems (not all, but several of them) can be found in An Anthology of Verse, which you could probably find at any library. It's probably a lot easier to read then this computer text, and you'll have a lot more selection, so if you like a few of the poems you see here, why don't you go to the library and sign that book out?

Since I'm always finding new poems I think are spiffy, this is an ever growing list of poems, so don't be afraid to come back once in a while to see who or what I've added. And if you know of a poet you'd like to see me include in the list, please feel free to e-mail me with their name and I'll see if I can't hunt them down. Click on a poet's name to go to their poetry. I've listed them in alphabetical order. If you're looking for a specific poem by title, click Here. If you're looking for a first line, click Here. Enjoy!
