In Honor of April, Poetry Month -- favorite poems!

I sometimes think that I am not a huge poetry fan, but when I think about things that I have read and enjoyed, I realize I LOVE a lot of poetry!  Starting with good old Dr. Seuss, then a great performance by Kermit the Frog of Robert Frost's "Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening," all the great poetry in Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glassthen all the wonderful poetry in J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings series, and moving on to 'The Simpsons' great version of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven" ... so I hope you have some favorites too!

Here are some of mine:
