Humans write poetry as a response to our inner need to communicate and express oneself. I was just wondering what anyones favorite poem is any why? What emotions does it envoke? Why is it special to you?

My current favorite is Invictus by William Henley.

Your comment <(we) write poetry as a response to our inner need to communicate and express (ourselves)> led me to recall what some famous poets have said about what poetry is to them. You can read their comments here:

Here's a quote from the work cited above:

Bring me all of your dreams,
You dreamers...
Bring me all of your Heart melodies
That I may wrap them
In a blue cloud-cloth
Away from the too-rough fingers
Of the world.

- Langston Hughes
