Favorite poems

Sherry O'Keefe shared a wonderful Frank O'Hara poem on Facebook as one of her favorites.

It tickled me so much to read a terrific poem on Facebook, where even poet usually share music videos and political articles, that it made me wonder about starting a series here, asking you for links to your favorite poems.

Here's one of mine, a poem by Stanley Kunitz, "The Round." It includes his reading and introductory remarks. Sadly, the print Atlantic Monthly no longer publishes poetry. And I no longer subscribe.

What's a favorite poem of yours? Add a comment or email me and I'll post it here. Could be an interesting list.
