Top 10 Poets

A selection of 10 great poets.

1. John Keats
" A thing of beauty is a joy for ever: Its loveliness increases; it will never Pass into nothingness;" (Endymion)

2. William Shakespeare
"Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom."

3. William Blake
To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour. (Auguries of Innocence)

4. Emily Dickinson
"Hope" is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all,

5. Robert Frost
"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
I took the one less traveled by.
And that has made all the difference."

6. Walt Whitman
"I Celebrate myself;
And what I assume you shall assume;
For every atom belonging to me, as good belongs to you." (Song of Myself)

7. Percy Bysshe Shelley
"The One remains, the many change and pass;
Heaven's light forever shines, Earth's shadows fly;" (Adonais)

8. Milton
"With loss of Eden, till one greater Man
Restore us, and regain the blissful seat,
Sing, Heavenly Muse" (Paradise Lost, i. 1–6)

9. Sri Aurobindo
"A burning Love from white spiritual founts
Annulled the sorrow of the ignorant depths;
Suffering was lost in her immortal smile.
A Life from beyond grew conqueror here of death;" (Savitri)

10. Rumi
O Love, O pure deep Love, be here, be now,
Be all – worlds dissolve into your
stainless endless radiance, (odes of Rumi)
