Sometimes I've looked at threads that people post their favorite poems but obviously nobody says why it's their favorite, they just post the poem. But is it something we can talk about?

For instance, a few people mentioned liking "The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost." No, not just liking, it was their top three favorite poem...ever! I don't get this. I saw the poem's message as simple and something I had thought about or seen many times before. Yet with some people it made some deep connection obviously.

On the other hand, The Raven, by Poe, that's a great poem. Why? I love how it builds up, the rhymes, the sounds, the images, I get the shivers just reading it. But why that poem and not some other poem that uses similar techniques? Not sure.

I like the poetry of Allen Ginsberg, because its long winded rythems matches up to the impulses in my brain.
