'Hamas' Jenkins

Yeats' "The Second Coming" is the most referenced poem of the 20th century; "He Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven" might be the most beautiful;

Pound's "Hugh Selwyn Mauberly" is dense enough to stand up to dozens of readings but accessible enough not to require poring over to get a drip of info out of.

Ted Hughes' "Daffodils" is wonderful


Wallace Stevens: The Snowman

Stanley Kunitz: The Wellfleet Whale

Randall Jarrell: The Death of the Ball Turret Gunner

Frost: Nothing Gold can Stay

Wilfred Owen: Dulce et Decorum est
