I absolutely love poetry and everything that has to do with it. I may not use a lot of different styles, but I do try and put as much of myself into them as I can. I also do my best to make sure that not one person walks away without having taken something from my writing.
Some of my influences are:
E.E. Cummings, Robert Frost, Edgar Allen Poe, Walt Whitman, William Wadsworth, Matthew Arnold, William Blake, John Donne, John Skelton, Pablo Neruda, Geoffrey Chaucer, William Shakespeare, Sir Walter Scott, John Keats, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Alfred, Lord Tennyson, Robert Browning, William Butler Yeates, Robert Louis Stevenson, C.K. Williams, Donald Justice, and many more as my knowledge of the wonderful world of poetry expands and grows.
If you have suggestions for poets you would like me to read please feel free to let me know. I am always looking for new influences and styles to further my knowing of poetry.
