Romantic Poetry - What inspires you? Who are your favorite poets? Discourse with examples if you may

Blog Posted:3/31/2014 5:10:00 PM
I would like to present three romantic poems, two of them classic, that according to my opinion can be classified as temporal (pertaining to time).

1) Does the fact that the two of them were written quite some time ago, affect your willingness (and mood) to study them or consider them romantically valid, now in the 21st century?

2) What tokens of contemporary "romantic poetry" (that you approve of) do you have to propose and present.

3) Please bring in verse and offer credit to the authors.

A poem written by George Byron (~1820):

A poem written by Emily Dickinson (1924):

A poem written by me:

    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.

    I have no favorite between the first two classic poems. I consider Dickinson an elegant and feminine writer who idealizes the souls she worships through honest, aristocratic and purified feelings. --- Byron's poem approaches the intense erotic element (which is inspired by a physically beautiful feminine presence), through lyric descriptions and enhancing, handsome metaphors. The latter maintain the author's dignity, well-bred mannerism and self-confidence, intact. Both poems are well written and validly worthy. I want to believe that we shall receive more opinionated feedback by the members.

    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.

    rhapsodical (derives from the Greek word "rhapsothia" ) rhap·sod·ic-al --- 1. extravagantly enthusiastic; ecstatic. 2. pertaining to, characteristic of, or of the nature or form of rhapsody. --- Rhapsode, a work of epic poetry, or part of one, that is suitable for recitation at one time, a classical Greek professional performer of epic poetry. --- Rhapsody (music), an episodic instrumental composition of indefinite form.

    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 :)
