    Ovid... i love poetry that takes you away where you never been, (JC said so)
    and and Pre, post Romantics did so much better...
    Coleridge, shelley Byron, Keats, and Dickensian etc are matchless
    they got melody flow, depth, rhythm everything one could see in a poem, a big source of Catharses and inspiration.

      Those are timeless elements of strong work John, but largely missing from today's poetry. -LP

      I agree John. And, if JC said it, it's gospel.....(that was a joke Delilah. Sorry! ! !)

    Coleridge and Wordsworth for me: hard to beat their common language set to great music. -LP

      Agreed. I'm going to have a 'Wordsworth Night' tonight. Haven't delved into him in awhile. I'm going to smoke a huge joint first.
