Poetry-wise, that is. It might only last a dozen posts, but whatever. I prefer the classics, mostly the pretty straightforward stuff. My favorites poets are Frost and Stephen Crane. The latter is better known for "Red Badge of Courage," but man, his lines are amazing. Big fan of epic poetry also--The Illiad and The Rime of the Ancient Mariner especially. A few miscellaneous favorites are Robinson's "Richard Cory," Shelley's "Ozymandias," and Ehrmann's (?) "Desiderata." But my all-time favorite is definitely Kipling's "Tommy." Gotta repost it here: More'n a hundred years old, but it's rung true since then--and before as well, I'm sure. And I love it.
