I love to read Sanskrit poetry and English poetry. They interest me to a great deal. What kind of poetry do you like? I like to read long poems and sometimes small poems as well depending upon their content and usefulness.

I like a lot to read poetry, i like love poems, in special Romanian poets, we have great poet..Eminescu, is our national poet. He die very young to 39, but let us so many poetry, great to read... "Down where the lonely poplars grow How often have I erred; My steps that all the neighbours know You only have not heard. Towards your window lighted through How oft my gaze has flown; A world entire my secret knew You only have not known. A word, a murmur of reply How often did I pray! What matters then if I should die, Enough to live that day; To know one hour of tenderness, One hour of lovers’ night; To hear you whisper’s soft caress One hour, then come what might! Had you but granted me a glance That was not filles with scorn, Out of its shinning radiance A new star had been born. You would have lived through lives untold Beyond the ends of time; O deity with arms so cold, O marble form sublime! An idol of some pagan lore As now no more is seen, Come down to us from times yore, From times that long have been"..... I hope that you enjoy with this great poem!!!

i like reading short poems. i dont like the long ones, probably i get distracted while reading long poems. i also like to write poems and i like short poems. i love reading poems because they short and have deeper meanings

Yes, I do read poetry a lot when I have free time. i love writing poems even though I am not good at it. i love express my feelings through there. I usually read English Poetry such as Shakespeare although It is hard to understand but I am very patient to study and read romance poetry. I love the poetry that has very descriptive and entertaining.
