Hamlette is hosting a Poetry Celebration Month these days so if you like poetry as I do, be sure to visit her blog for many delightful posts on the subject.
I know I am embarrassingly late in joining the festivities, but I shall try to make up for it this coming week.
She has created a lovely poetry tag and here are my answers:
What are some poems you like?
The Lady Of Shalott by Tennyson
The Golden Horns by Adam Oehlenschlager
And many others that I can't remember right now...
What are some poems you dislike?
I don't recall really disliking a poem. But I don't enjoy them as much if I have serious trouble understanding the language.
Are there any poets whose work you especially enjoy? If so, who are they?
Yes, there definitely are. But I shall not reveal it here as I am writing a post wholly dedicated to my favourite poets.
Do you write poetry?
I wrote a lot of poetry when I was younger, but lately the inspiration has kind of disappeared.
Have you ever memorized a poem?
I have memorised many passages from poems, but I can't recall a single poem I can recite in its entirety.
Do you prefer poetry that rhymes and had a strict meter, or free verse? Or do you like both?
I have a certain weakness for poems that rhyme and I like it if they have some kind of rhythm to them. That being said, all my own poems were free verse without a single rhyme so I think that kind of poems are beautiful too.
Do you have any particular poetry movements you're fond of? (Beat poets, Romanticism, Fireside poets, etc?
I really like the Romanticism and the Expressionism
