Poetry has become more important to me lately. It's hard for me to find good poems, but when you do...it's like magic!

Some of my favorite poems
Theodore Roethke:
If only I could nudge you from this sleep,
My maimed darling, my skittery pigeon.
Over this damp grave I speak the words of my love:
I, with no rights in this matter,
Neither father nor lover.
Objects familiar to my view;
The very pathway to my door
Is an enchanted avenue.
Our eyes to heaven, if we are blind;
We see but what we have the gift
Of seeing; what we bring we find.

Elegy for Jane (http://gawow.com/roethke/poems/98.html)

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow:
I look, but recognize no more
In vain we look, in vain uplift
