    You probably just thought the words were pretty.

    Okay, enough useless posting from yours truly. Here's one of my favorite poems:

    EDIT: MBTIC's ghost strikes again. I'll try again later.
    The one who buggers a fire burns his penis
    -anonymous graffiti in the basilica at Pompeii

    Why is there so damn much S hate on this forum? I feel discriminated against on a daily basis.

    I like Robert Frost. I like the concept of his poem and the message is oh so true. The words are pretty as well.

    I'm just lampooning the S-hate. If you had any N at all you'd know that.

    I also love Frost, and there's nothing wrong with finding the words pretty on one level. There needs to be another level for me to truly enjoy a poem.

    In general, I don't get too psyched about poetry. That's just me. I think the first poem I was required to memorize and recite was "Stopping By The Woods On A Snowy Evening" - R.F.

    I've always loved this one.

    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.

    Surely some revelation is at hand;
    Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
    The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
    When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
    Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert
    A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
    A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
    Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
    Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
    The darkness drops again; but now I know
    That twenty centuries of stony sleep
    Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
    And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
    Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

    Eileen! I love that poem!

    I always think of it when I see a bird of prey overhead, turning and turning in the widening gyre.

    From Stephen Crane:

    In the desert

    Who, squatting upon the ground,
    Held his heart in his hands,
    And ate of it.
    I said, "Is it good, friend?"
    "It is bitter -- bitter," he answered;
    "But I like it
    Because it is bitter,
    And because it is my heart."
    This bears repeating, I think.

    Oddly, this poem can be sung (with only very minor alteration) to the tune of "No Quarter" by Led Zeppelin.

    It's simple and I love it.

    When things go wrong
    as they sometimes will,
    when the road you're trudging
    seems all uphill,
    when the funds are low,
    and the debts are high,
    and you want to smile,
    but you have to sigh,
    when care is pressing you down a bit...
    rest if you must- but don't you quit.

    Success is a failure turned inside out,
    the silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
    And you never can tell how close you are,
    it may be near when it seems afar,
    so stick to the fight
    when you're hardest hit...
    it's when things go wrong,
    that you mustn't quit.
    It's not profound or anything, but whenever I read this, it makes me sad and happy at the same time. I love this poem.
