Can you share yours favorite poem

Tomorrow is National Poetry Day, and believe it or not, poetry was one of the first forms of writing I ever picked up.

During my first few years of college I always had a book of poetry with me. I loved Richard Wilbur, Pablo Neruda, Rainer Maria Rilke, and William Carlos Williams.

But for some reason, years ago, I stopped writing and reading poetry altogether. So, for the last 20 days I’ve been reading 25 poems a day from Poem Hunter’s Top 500 poems list. (Note: I have no idea how they determined the “Top 500,” so I’m just going with it for now)

Below you’ll find my favorite poems on the list, along with a few extras I wish were included.


Still amazing

Should have been in the Top 500
