My daughters and I have several poets that we love. Here is our list of poets that we have in common as favorites: Emily Dickinson, Mary Oliver, Robert Frost and Lee Young-Li.

Edgar Allen Poe. I am cheating a bit. Poe is in my top five, Frost is my number one, but Poe my son's fav and has been for at least 20 years.

Post Re: A Shared Favorite Poet
Sometimes readers think that the speaker's mistress is portrayed as hideous, with "wires" for hair and breath that "reeks." A teacher once told us that both words didn't have such a negative connotation for Elizabethans. So, his mistress may still actually be a "looker," and what we have is the poet making fun of the extravagance of the comparisons used in conventional love poems, the "false compare" of the last line.

Post Re: A Shared Favorite Poet
My daughters and I share a love of Shel Silverstein and A A Milne. There are other poems we have in common, but those are the only poets.

DWill, as I was reading down, that was what I was going to say about that sonnet, but you beat me to it :yes:
