And as I sat and wondered,
The boy with the green eyes winked at me

hmm....not really...maybe 2pac, but i just like how he puts things into his own perspective.

Hm. Robert Frost, sometimes; I used to really hate having to read his poetry in school, because we always got the most simplistic and preachy ones to read. At least, in the ways that we had to analyze them, they seemed preachy. *sigh* But other of his poems are waaay better than the ones assigned for school... "Mending Wall" is one.
I also get inspiration from e.e. cummings.

Outside proffessional poets, I've learned a lot from xenith and [believe it or not] gaia. I like reading work that's new, and not proffesional, but that's still excellent. And then there's some that is almost that good, and is enjoyable none the less...and reading it teaches me things.
Please click above and help me make a living! Come chat about music at InTune. You want to. You know you do.

i get inspiration from James Clemens, an author.
