03/15/2002 Entry: "Which poet am I?"
I actually scored equally among 3 poets: Alfred Lord Tennyson, ee, and (gasp) Mya Angeloo (?)! I'll pick ee, thank you! Or better...
ill pic(k) ee thankyouverymuch (!)

I was also one of 3: T. S. Eliot, Alfred Lord Tennyson and William Shakespeare. I like Tennyson the best: I am analytical and like to debate. I want truth and beauty. Every cloud has a silver lining. I believe it is better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all.

You like Tennyson? You're not getting him confused with Lord Byron, are you? If not, I didn't know you were a Tennyson fan. I like "Crosing the Bar" and "Break, Break, Break" the best.
As for ee, I am a fan of "In Just- Spring." It's funny, and a little sad: ee's poems are still under copyright, and the copyright holders vigorously defend that copyright on th Internet. I've seen many ee sites that say "Sorry, but I had to pull the poems down." Too bad--they really should be shared. I'm going to add a new post right now!

I am Alfred Lord Tennyson, Carl Sandburg, and Shakespeare. Who is Sandburg? I was hoping for Edna St. Vincent Millay. Oh, well. Can't win 'em all.

What I meant by like was I think the Tennyson description, out of the 3 listed, best describes me. Sorry for the confusion.

Sandburg is one of my favorites! I only wish that had been me. You, Sandburg... Chicago? Hog butcher for the world? Fog? On little cat feet? You know Fog. I know you know it. You just have forgotten.

Now that I see it, I do remember "little cat feet"! Just never realized (or remembered) who had written it. I like the Grass poem, too. Guess I need to start reading poetry again. I don't really think I have since high school. (I do remember ee cummings--we read one about a cockroach on a typewriter with Mrs. Perry. Sound familiar to you?)

I am a Robert Frost, Carl Sandburg, and Emily Dickinson. Robert Frost is my all time favorite

You're not thinking of Archy and Mehitabel, are you? Archy was a cockroach who threw his body on a typewritter, and wrote free verse. Plus, he couldn't capitalize: he couldn't jump on a key and shift at the same time.
