Elizabeth-I think its always been the ones that tug at the heart strings that were the winnners, my favorite always being Desederata.  Nice piece, I enjoyed your tribute.

Liz,
This is another of your fantastic poems on show... and I am pretty sure that this show will go on forever.... what a wonderful way of writing... forever enjoyable...

to your question,
There were amongst a few that got me writing (remember, I started writing notes and prose before poems...), the prominent poets whose works inspired me were Charles Dickens, H.H.Munro (Saki) and Shakespeare ... as for the poets are considered, how can I say whose work I liked to read the most... well let me just say Robert Frost, Wordsworth, Rabindranath Tagore, ...

but what got me writing poems were perhaps the lyrics to songs from rock/pop bands like Pink Floyd, Metallica, and many others whose musically ardent fan I have been for the past 8-10 years ever since I first listened to Springsteen songs like Dancing in the Dark and Phil Collins/Genesis etc... and this lost is endless...

regards,
sudhir

Gemini, Thanks so much for your remarks

Sudhir, You are a hound dog to sniff this one out of the back pages. Thank you for your comments. You named a few poets I'm not familiar with
My greatest pleasure in poetry was the wonderful lyrics written for Brazilian music in the 1960's. Vinicius de Moraes had a command of the Portuguese language like nothing I've seen since in poetry or music. Then put it to those samba rhythms, and it's what we call soft jazz. But oh, the lyrics!
Thanks Sudhir, for you input
Liz

I don't know who brought this up, but I would like  to thank them and also to thank you for writing something wonderful. I can't believe I missed this before. May I put in a request that you re post it in Open 18? I feel like a lot of people are missing out with this being archived. LOL! I'm having challenge thoughts here. Perhaps the question this poem asks could be a good subject for our poets. It could make for some wonderful insight into where poetry had its beginning with some of us. PLEASE POST IT IN 18, Dear Lady?
