    Talking favorite poem

    what is your favorite poem. i really like the raven, its music to my ears.

    Edgar Allan Poe: The Raven

    i also like ozymandias

    I met a traveller from an antique land
    Who said: "Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
    Stand in the desert. Near them on the sand,
    Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown
    And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command
    Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
    Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
    The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed.
    And on the pedestal these words appear:
    `My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings:
    Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!'
    Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
    Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare,
    The lone and level sands stretch far away.

    I love anything Shel Silverstien. But in particular I fancy "Where The Sidewalk Ends" avove his other works. I just love his creativity, he is both a bit morbid, yet wonderfully whimsical all at once. And his illustrations are perfect for his work as they are also very simple and whimsically drawn.

    Lament of the Winds by JRR Tolkein. It is as they are pushing Boromir into the river. Its powerful image mixed with its inevitable sorrowful end makes it one of the best poems ever written.

    Lament for Boromir by John Ronald Reuel Tolkien

    Re: favorite poem

    My favorite would have to be "A Tree" by Prannoy Mathew, although I just admire the first line:
    " I think I shall never see a poem
    As lovely as a tree."

    Signature is a Gwenibe original.
