Poets Oscar Wilde has his quotes And William Yeats makes it clear, Robert Frost will set the mood With a candle and a beer. Walt Whitman is worth reading And Hardy is very deep, You should read Mr. Hayden Stephen Crane is one to keep. Emily is amazing E.E. Cummings you should love When you read Emily Plath The angels sing from above. I am no William Shakespeare Or an Edger Allan Poe, For I am Troy H. Snyder My name you will come to know.

Welcome to poetry soup, Troy. Those are all some of my favorite poets you've listed, especially Emily D., Walt and Robert Frost. Which of the newer poets, still alive, do you read and like? This is another save for me and a 7.~~~Darlene
