This is a forum intended for poetry of all types, contemporary or classic: whatever inspires you. Post your favorite poems and maybe someone will be moved like you were. You can even quote passages from books that you find especially powerful, but use your own best judgement with this freedom (no chapters, thanks). This community is for poets and writers with some degree of renown, however slight - including poets often overlooked by critics, teachers, and readers. The purpose of this community is inspiration. Please don't post your own poetry. This isn't a place to get your own material critiqued. That being said, give us anything from Shakespeare to Hunter S. Thompson to Pablo Neruda. Enjoy.
"We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion." --John Keating, _Dead Poets Society_
