I had loved poetry from childhood...but the poet that made me feel that I could pick up pen and "attempt", was McKuen...[see my post, "Hello, Rod"....]

but Cat...I don't have all his books.  I am currently on a mission to visit used book stores and find his "treasures"...I take my "list" everywhere I go....

I had two at the beginning of the month, given to me some 30 years ago...in the last few weeks, I have picked up six more....

I'm on a roll through his hills and valleys...

and I am taking time to appreciate more poetry and poets all the time...

I'm always growing more intimate with the works of Shakespeare, Edgar Allan Poe, Sir Walter Scott, & Thomas Hardy.  
They are my four favorite.

Carl Sandburg and Rod Mckuen. I go for walks nearly weekly at what is now the Carl Sandburg National Historic Site, (his last home) and Rod Mckuen once came to my high school and perfomed (in the memory of a classmate who had recently died). So while my choices are influenced by more than just their writing, I still feel they are two of America's best ever.

There is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar.

Ani DiFranco was also very influential.
