Years ago, I used to write poetry and had a few published out of the couple hundred I have written. If you like poetry, feel free to read mine and tell me what you think.

Very nice. I like your poems. I've been working on poems myself. This one here, I never got to finish, not as best as yours but Im improving it. Somewhere in my heart The feelings begin to start The creature in me awakes Hidden it gathers its power in its wake The world trembles as my name is called Everyones soul has stalled This creature inside is born Hatred and evil is what it has sworn

I like those poems!

I also wrote a few for my girlfriend and I think one of them is quite good, but I can't publish them as I gave them away as present :)

But I like reading a poem every once in a while, especially in different languages. I like a few of Edgar Allen Poe's poems, for example.

Same here, I don't know all of his poems, but The Raven is my favourite poem. One of the few I learned by heart just because I like it so much.

It's great how you find something new about this poem whenever you think about it.

Another good poem by Poe is "Annabel Lee". Very sad, but I like it very much because the rythm sounds similar to the sound of the sea crashing onto a shore (forget the English word for that).

Here is another of my favourite poems, this one is by Verlaine:

Chanson d’automne

les sanglots longs des violons de l'automne blessent mon coeur D'une langueur Monotone.

Tu suffocant Et blême, quand Sonne l'heure,

Je me souviens Des jours anciens Et je pleure:

Et je m'en vais Au vent mauvais Qui m'emporte Deçà, delà, Pareil à la Feuille morte.

here's another i really like.

Lenore by: Edgar Allen Poe Ah, broken is the golden bowl! the spirit flown forever! Let the bell toll!- a saintly soul floats on the Stygian river; And, Guy de Vere, hast thou no tear?- weep now or nevermore! See! on yon drear and rigid bier low lies thy love, Lenore! Come! let the burial rite be read- the funeral song be sung!- An anthem for the queenliest dead that ever died so young- A dirge for her the doubly dead in that she died so young.

"Wretches! ye loved her for her wealth and hated her for her pride, And when she fell in feeble health, ye blessed her- that she died! How shall the ritual, then, be read?- the requiem how be sung By you- by yours, the evil eye,- by yours, the slanderous tongue That did to death the innocence that died, and died so young?"

Peccavimus; but rave not thus! and let a Sabbath song Go up to God so solemnly the dead may feel no wrong. The sweet Lenore hath "gone before," with Hope, that flew beside, Leaving thee wild for the dear child that should have been thy bride. For her, the fair and debonair, that now so lowly lies, The life upon her yellow hair but not within her eyes The life still there, upon her hair- the death upon her eyes.

"Avaunt! avaunt! from fiends below, the indignant ghost is riven- From Hell unto a high estate far up within the Heaven- From grief and groan, to a golden throne, beside the King of Heaven! Let no bell toll, then,- lest her soul, amid its hallowed mirth, Should catch the note as it doth float up from the damned Earth! And I!- to-night my heart is light!- no dirge will I upraise, But waft the angel on her flight with a Paean of old days!"

I did one or two, but they're somewhere in the Spam Forum.

I particularly like Shakespeare's poetry, and I can't pinpoint what's so excellent about it. The prologue to Romeo & Juliet is the best:

Two households, both alike in dignity, In fair Verona, where we lay our scene. From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. From forth the fatal loins of these two foes, Two starcross'd lovers take their lives, Whose misadventured piteous overthrows Doth with their death bury their parents' strife. The fearful passage of their death-mark'd love, And the continuance of their parents' rage, Which, but their children's end, nought could remove, Is now the two hours' traffic of our stage; The which if you with patient ears attend, What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.

(from memory - that's Higher English for you...)

I like this part, maybe because of the long verses Poe uses. [QUOTE=Reven]I did one or two, but they're somewhere in the Spam Forum.

This is a great poem as well, but I also can't really tell what I like about it. Maybe it's the mixture of different things, or just the pattern of a sonnet.
