True poetry...

If you want to read a poem that will make you cry,read 'The Prisoner of Chillion: a fable' by George Gordon Byron. It is one of the best poems I have ever read. It sent a little chill up my spine,and tears to my eyes.

Another really good love poem is 'Isabella; or the pot of basil' by John Keats. Its really sweet.


  1. Thanks! I have been very interested in reading poetry for a long time now, so it will be nice to have some selected. :) Have you read any Thoreau?

  2. I haven't read much poetry by him,but his quotes are really good.I was going to read his jurnal(I can't remember what the date was),but I never was able to get it from the library. :}

  3. That sounds cool! You will have to tell me about it. I was interested in looking at his stuff but haven't yet. (I have no idea why, though!)
