back then in my younger ears , way back, i rememberr reading beautiful poems. I memorized some but I already forget them. seems to me, reading poem isn't that as common as it used to. just now, i have read such beautiful old poem. very interesting and very lovely to read. the way it tells such a beautiful story. what's your favorite poem and what's it about.

I do not read anymore, but I still remember all those we memorized when i went to school. My favorite is an Italian poem by Carducci "Davanti a San Gui_do". (sorry I had to modify a word, Gu*ido is considered a bad word in American)

It's been years since I last read a poem. But I have an account on hubpages and I'll just login to resume reading poems.
