I like a bit of Wordsworth now and then.  Grey's elegy is good.  Not much else, really.

I like some poetry ... I had a small book of poems when I was in my early 20s.  There was one poem I absolutely loved ... have no idea what ever happened to the book,  And now I can't remember the title of the book or the title of the poem.

Fog

The fog comes
on little cat feet.
 
It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.

I read poetry so little I'm not sure I even have a favorite.  I used to read some poetry when I was a lot younger and these days I read it only when I have to review.

Strangely enough, I learned to love poetry in 10th grade English, when we had a textbook with guys like Hart Crane represented, and not the usual Hiawatha kind of drivel...I went out and got a paperback of "Leaves of Grass" and didn't look back...

The only poem that comes to my mind is The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere   :-)

People our age tend to fill in "...and the Raiders" upon hearing that name...
