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...
