I have two favorite poems and both of them reflect patriotism, one is, "The Charge of the Light Brigade" by Alfred Lord Tennyson, circa 1854, and the other is "The Defence of Fort McHenry" by Francis Scott Key, circa 1814. The former is narritave poem describing a heroic charge of a 600 man Light Calvery Brigade into the teeth of overwhelming enemy artillery during the Crimean War, and the latter is also a narrative poem which describes the English bombardment of Ft. McHenery, in Baltimore, Maryland during the War of 1812.

Shortly after "The Defense of Fort McHenery" was written it was set to the tune of a popular English drinking song and renamed the "Star Spangled Banner". In 1931 The Congress of the United States by formal resolution officially made the first and fourth stanzas the National Anthem, although only the first stanza is commonly sung today,the forth is used at very formal events.

Yes, I love it! I write poems a lot! And my teacher says I'm a good writer, so I keep writing, i don't know my favorite poem, actually, I don't read poems a lot, I just... write them! I don't know lol But I'm not used to read poems, but even though, I like it!
I don't used to read poem, but I like any writers with Vinicius de Moraes and Drummond. I would like to read more.
I do.
My favorite poem is The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe.
To be honest, I am not used to read poems, I can't understand them, perhaps it is because I am not used to read some, or because there are complex enough to us if we want to read them like a normal text, carelessly. I think we have to read them slowly, with passion, otherwise we can't understand them.

Funny Poem/Limerick Zezão

Of all poems and funny limericks
Zezão writes one that really ticks;
He climbs up a tree
To examine the sea,
Without resorting to walking sticks.

The other day he tried a new one
But woke up to find it was gone;
The wind had blown in,
Sweeping the table inn
Out onto a fine marble stone.

And now, often by peacemeal,
Zezão quickly slaps them together;
He does it with a pen
Hiding In the lion's den,
In spite of inclement weather.

You can do it it too. Why no try your hand at it?

Bill, I only recently learned that "America the Beautiful" (sung to the tune of "God Save the Queen") was the most popular American anthem until WW1, when US forces in Europe decided on something else to distinguish themselves from the British.

I like this simple version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zCxJClb ... re=related

Poetry
by Marianne Moore

I, too, dislike it: there are things that are important beyond
all this fiddle.
Reading it, however, with a perfect contempt for it, one
discovers in
it after all, a place for the genuine.
Hands that can grasp, eyes
that can dilate, hair that can rise
if it must, these things are important not because a

high-sounding interpretation can be put upon them but because
they are
useful. When they become so derivative as to become
unintelligible,
the same thing may be said for all of us, that we
do not admire what
we cannot understand: the bat
holding on upside down or in quest of something to

eat, elephants pushing, a wild horse taking a roll, a tireless
wolf under
a tree, the immovable critic twitching his skin like a horse
that feels a flea, the base-
ball fan, the statistician--
nor is it valid
to discriminate against "business documents and

school-books"; all these phenomena are important. One must make
a distinction
however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the
result is not poetry,
nor till the poets among us can be
"literalists of
the imagination"--above
insolence and triviality and can present

for inspection, "imaginary gardens with real toads in them,"
shall we have
it. In the meantime, if you demand on the one hand,
the raw material of poetry in
all its rawness and
that which is on the other hand
genuine, you are interested in poetry.
dlr
some of my favorite poetry comes from songs, like:
"I got one foot one the platform,
the other foot on a train,
I'm going back to New Orleans
to wear that ball and chain."
from House of the Rising Sun

otherwise I enjoy Edgar Allan Poe, Fernando Pessoa and his pseudonyms, Robert Frost, Vinicius de Morães, among others. (and my own poetry)

Of course I do. My favourites are:

"The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe; "E agora José" by Drummond and "Invictus" by William Ernest Henley.
Yes, I do. My favorite poem is Annabel Lee, from Edgar Allan Poe.
My favorite poem is "Heaven is here" by Michael Jackson! Michael wrote a book called "Dancing The Dream" with poems and reflections. This book is one of the most beautiful things that I've read in my entire life! I like Manuel Bandeira poems too, like "Madrigal" and "Plenitude". Silentium by Tyutchev always touched me too!

I'm learning how to like poetry. It's a new reading for me, because I'm used to read History books, romances or tales. To be a poetry writer, you should be very creative and it's important to have a very huge vocabulary. The poetry I like most is Ismália, by Alphonsus de Guimaraens. This author was born in Ouro Preto (Minas Gerais), a state of Brazil, in 1870. He passed away in Mariana, other city of Minas Gerais, in 1921. He was a journalist and he worked with Laws. His first poetry book was Dona Mística, published in 1899. He used to write about love, death and religiosity.
Yep, I do.
Maybe is ''Alone'' or ''A Dream Within A Dream'' by Edgar A. Poe, I don't know choose only one ...cos I love these two poems. And Poe is my writer favorite. He's amazing, I love his poems and tales.
