  1. I'm not sure whether this has been done before, but I thought it might be interesting if those of you who like poetry could post their favorite poems.

    Here are mine:

    Robert Frost - Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening
    http://www.portitude.org/literature/frost/pt-stopping_by_woods.php

    Jenny Joseph - When I'm an Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple
    http://www.netmender.net/glenna/Purple.htm

    Dorothy Parker - Unfortunate Coincidence, Experience, Symptom Recital, Résumé, well, actually anything by her!
    http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~martinh/poems/parker.html

    and a final one in my mother tongue:
    Rainer Marie Rilke - Das Karussell im Jardin du Luxembourg
    http://www.informatik.uni-frankfurt.de/~haase/Lyrik/karussell.html
     
  2. I've never much been into poetry. But I'm going to go back to middle school with this one. I loved it so much. Annabel Lee by Edgar Allen Poe.
