Your favorite poem(s)
« on: April 13, 2014, 02:39:20 am »
Remember while doing this a poem can be anything from a verse of a Rap to Robert Frosts The Road Not Taken
A poem can be just one word... so you can even make one yourself.. That would be pretty cool but here are mine
It doesnt need to be five it can just be one :p

5.The Raven- Edgar Allen Poe
4. A Dream Within A Dream (BEFORE INCEPTION WAS COOL :fox-:P:)- Poe
3.O'Captain! My Captain!   -Walt Whitman
2. Whatif- Shel Silverstein
1.The Road Not Taken - Robert Frost

Half the reason i chose Mainstream The Road Not Taken was because I think it applies to being a furry allot.

I had a phase where I read and wrote a ton of poetry, so I have a number of pieces that I really like.

Richard Siken's "Snow and Dirty Rain" is easily my favorite, followed by a handful of these.
