What is/was the most eye-catching poem title you've ever seen ... and why?

(You may include "famous" poem or Passions poems, but please name the author if you can!)  


Linda

... what if the Hokey Pokey really IS what it's all about ...?

William Shakespeare --

"Those Lips That Love's Own Hand Did Make"

"When To The Sessions Of Sweet Silent Thought"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

L'Envoi
by: Rudyard Kipling
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Music, When Soft Voices Die
by Percy Bysshe Shelley
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And there are TOO MANY awesome titles from here at Passions to name them all but one of the best offerings from the challenges poems was
"Moonlight Shadows Dancing"
Something about that phrase is so cool and poetically lovely and the many poems that came from it were too.

Cool topic Linda  

When your own emptiness is all thats getting through
There comes a point when youre not sure why youre still talking
I passed that point long ago

Dickinson never titled her poems. They were numbered. People just refer to them by first line.

Mine are:

Preface to a twenty volume suicide note; Amiri Baraka (hope I spelled that right!)

Homage to my hips; Lucille clifton

Pull My Daisy; Ginsberg/Kerouac/Cassidy

I am a Victim of Telephone; Ginsberg

A Hundred Collars; Frost (I'm not a big Frost fan, but that one really pulled me in)

Ode: My Barber's breath; David Cameron



everything's fine.

I thought of another, though it's certainly stretching the definition of "poetry" a bit further than usual. Still, if we are to learn to write better titles through example, I think this one should definitely be included.

I have to echo Ron here with:

Lines Inscribed Upon a Cup Formed From a Skull by Lord Byron

The title alone struck me because this is just not something you see everyday... or might expect to...LOL

The poem, itself, embodying the sarcasm, wit, and overall attitude of Lord Byron, has been a brand to memory and a favorite of mine since the first reading.
