    I think good romantic poetry is timeless, like any good piece of art; 'She Walks in Beauty' is one of my favorites; it speaks with spirit and essence, very aesthetic, dreamy, like romantic love, Byron makes it mysterious, yet innocence is at the heart of everything. I think also he is partially using the poem as a metaphor for poetry itself; a good majority of the act of writing verse IS romantic in and of itself. Your poem is very good as well and also has a 'dreamy' quality to it. I think the final litmus test to a poem is impression; it's emotional on some level, very sincere initially, but ultimately it's mostly emotional, or poetry wouldn't have endured all these years.

    The Silken Tent -by Robert Frost-She is as in a field a silken tent/At midday when the sunny summer breeze/ Has dried the dew and all its ropes relent,/ So that in guys it gently sways at ease,/ And its supporting central cedar pole,/ That is its pinnacle to heavenward / And signifies the sureness of the soul,/ Seems to owe naught to any /single cord,/ But strictly held by none, is/ loosely bound/ By countless silken ties of love/ and thought/ To everything on earth the /compass round, And only by one's going slightly taut/ In the capriciousness of summer air/ Is of the slightest bondage made aware.

    Maya Angelou -Touched by an Angel-We, unaccustomed to courage/ exiles from delight/ live coiled in shells of loneliness/ until love leaves its high holy/ temple/ and comes into our sight/ to liberate us into life./ Love arrives/ and in its train come ecstasies/ old memories of pleasure/ ancient histories of pain./ Yet if we are bold,/ love strikes away the chains of fear/ from our souls./ We are weaned from our timidity/ In the flush of love's light/ we dare be brave/ And suddenly we see/ that love costs all we are/ and will ever be./ Yet it is only love/ which sets us free.

    if I had to place these in order of favouritism it would be as follows: no.3, no.1 and lastly no.2; that is my honest opinion and would be even if I didn't know who had written them...I don't like emily dickinson at all, her poetry does nothing for me, leaves me cold...I'll probably get lynched for saying that, but it's true! lol I like byron's poem a lot, but yours is my fave, I read it earlier today actually...a contemporary one I really like? - 'a dozen red roses' by grevel lindop - amazing poem :)

    Giorgio, your poem is exquisite, especially the final verse that wraps itself around the balance of your poem. Accolades due you Giorgio !Lord Byron's poem has to be one of my favorites ever. Quite honestly (just an opinion) Dickinson was so - so to me. I prefer your poem in this case to hers but also is she not in poetry times a contemporary poet? I know it's meter and that's why it's here but I often found her writing lacking that "something" emotionally. I think we must give contemporary poetry a hundred years don't you think? Just asking.
