Who is your favourite poet?

2 years ago

It’s a close call for me, but I’ll have to go with Rumi. He says so much with so few words.

“Make peace with the universe.
Take joy in it.
It will turn to gold.
Resurrection will be now.
Every moment, a new beauty.”

Here’s a great source of his work: http://fuckyeahrumi.tumblr.com

Share your favourites, with your favourite poem by them, if you like!

Can a band count as a poet? Haha, La Dispute’s lyrics are so poetic and often spoken in their songs. They’re some of my favorite combinations of words.

@brandonphillips, Their lyrics are defiantly poetry! I love how they write, the bands style is pretty in your face, but the words are great :)

No single poet. But the Poem
“The Wasteland” by T.S. Eliot

I couldn’t remember the name so I looked up 20th century poets and it was the #1 “best poem” on there. I have good taste. haha.

That poem is so incredible, so evil, so telling.

oh my god and Poe. Jesus christ poe is my favorite Poet!

Charles Bukowski there is no way I could narrow it down to one poem let alone one book.
his poetry/prose is much more than women/beer which is a common misconception about him.

He talks about life,depression, loneliness,the streets,being poor, working shit factory jobs, finding beauty in the most simple things in life. I love the way he can take such a brief moment in time and make it so concise.

as of late i’ve been getting into d.a. levy and anis mojgani

Bukowski writes some of the most depressingly beautiful poems. My personal favorite by him is “Bluebird.” I highly suggest you look it up
