I have not read too many books, but i have always been a fan of poetry. I dont usually have time to open up a book and read so I usually read poetry from time to time (yearly that is) :mrgreen:
I think my favorite would have to be The Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner
I am always looking forward to reading poetry especially about love and disasters. I did read quite a few by Poe and Byron.... I would love to have some suggestions for some good love (possible lost love or forgotten love) poems...
Thank you guys,
Juv

Have you read Annabel Lee by Poe yet? I do not know many poems in the Love catagory, but that one comes to mind. Another that I like is La Belle Dames San Meric by Keats, and the Sick Rose by Blake

Hmm I read Sick Rose last night and it is quitie puzzling. It is much more complicated then its size. I will have to devote some time to it again today. Thanks.
The Eve of St. Agnes on the other hand I have not read yet. I will look into it when i get some time in the night.
thanks guys,
Juv

Yes it is a small poem, but one I quite enjoy, another good one by Poe, if you have not already read it is To--- ---, a poem I just recently came acorss you might enjoy is A Red, Red Rose, by Burns, and if you like Coleridge, then you might engoy Kubla Khan if you have not read it already.

i enjoy "the sick rose" in that way that, even though its only a few lines long, there's like five ways to interpret it.

i recommend all of blake's "songs of experience" (the sick rose is one). they don't all have to do with lost love but they are, as the title suggests, songs of experience, so there is a good deal of that kind of subject matter.

i recommend "london" :D

Another good one by Keats is Ode On A Greacian Urn, don't know if I got the titile exzact, I belive it does touch upon the idea of lost love

ya the title's right.."Ode on a Grecian Urn" although it's mainly just a testimony to beauty in life, not much abt lost love

I am not sure I can name a single favorite poem, but among my favorites is C. Rosettii's "In The Bleak Mid-Winter." There is a darkness to her life; her artistry--that is ultimately overcome.

Yes I know what it is about, but there is the one part which talks upon the frozen lovers upon the urn
