See it's odd, whenever I hear that poem I always think of gold as a fall color, that it's talking about death - not about the loss of youth smile That's what comes from living in New England smile

I don't think it's odd at all. I can definitely see it as a fall color.

I see it as, being able to see nature is as worthy if not more so as gold.

I love how the words flow.

When I write poetry, I usually do not use rhyme, but I love the style of Robert Frost. When I try to rhyme, to me it sounds like a child writing, that is why I do not use it. I think I will take some more lit classes and focus on poetry.

I do rhyme often, when I write poetry. Its such fun. Another thing I love to do that drives my brother to distraction is change the words to famous hymns and make loads of new verses, it is such fun, I'm sure God don't mind, in fact some I am sure he finds as funny as me! LOL!

I'm not fond of rhymed poetry unles it's tremendously effective and suited to the content. Robert Frost comes to mind as being someone whose rhyme and meter I quite fancy .

As far as favourite poets are concerned: I'm partial to metaphysical poets such as Rumi and Blake, with a penchant for Rimbaud and Baudelaire on the more windswept, thundery days.

Frost, Frost, Frost! Poe. Blake and Keats. Burns.

Pablo Neruda for sure. Robert Service's Yukon stuff is great fun. Lewis Carrol.

I also enjoy Tolkien's poetry in LOTR. smile

Nathaniel Parker Willis for his poem April (my favorite). I like Emma Wilcox as well.
