      >Classical Chinese poetry is probably my favorite but no individual poems stick out to me, I like it as a whole
      Agreed, in my post above I just picked 86 because it was the first one that came to mind, a more real answer would be the whole Classic minus the more purely political ones.

    Spleen (III)
    A Dream for Winter

  14. 4 months ago

    I can't name ten but "The Tiger" by Nael, Age 6 is among them.

    The first ten that come to mind, without repeating an author:

    Fern Hill (Dylan Thomas)
    She Tells Her Love While Half-Asleep (Robert Graves)
    Jaguar (Ted Hughes)
    Hurt Hawks (Robinson Jeffers)
    'As Imperceptibly As Grief' (Emily Dickinson)
    Touch (Thom Gunn)
    Napoleon (Walter de la Mare)
    Ode To Autumn (John Keats)
    The Trees (Philip Larkin)
    The Fall Of Rome (W. H. Auden)

    Probably half of them will be different tomorrow (or in an hour's time).

  16. 4 months ago

    Paradise lost
    Love's philosophy
    The Raven
    Kubla Khan
    Ode to a nightingale

    Sir Gawain and the green knight

    I didn't want to include longer stuff like metamorphoses because I don't think that's what OP is looking for.
