I enjoy poetry. I like to write it more than I like to read it, but I do keep several books of poetry in my study that I can just pick up and turn through when I need a bit of artistic stimulation. I like that poems can be read over and over again, and can carry different meanings not just for different people, but even for a single person. I have several poems that I fell in love with for certain reasons many years ago that now I love for completely different reasons. It's like poetry is flexible and versatile, applicable to so many different situations and ages, that it's hard not to feel drawn to.

Yes, I do enjoy reading poetry. I don't often read poetry, but I do occasionally read some poems, and such.

I like the line. I'm not a huge fan of poetry. But when I'm in the mood I enjoy reading poems occassionally. I don't have a favorite at the moment.
