    Hi Amy hope this helps

    Q What book/poem/author/poet has been most influential upon your writing?

    Roger McGough: 'Many poets and writers - Dylan Thomas, Kurt Vonnegut, James Joyce, Adrian Mitchell, E.E. Cummings; threads from many poets.'

    Its a bit generalised for all his poems though (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!
