Poetry meme

An LJ friend of mine has suggested that everyone post their favorite poem. Well, I think The Wasteland is a bit long for a blog post, so here are some others that I like:

After the Philharmonic

Two paths diverged in a well-known park,
One well-lit, the other -- dark.
And since I did not wish to die,
I took the one more traveled by.

--James Camp

Okay, that was short. Here's another one:

Shake and shake
The catsup bottle.
None will come,
And then a lot’ll.

--Richard Armour

This last one's for Amanda (Not that I'm saying this to her. I'm just sharing):

you fit into me

you fit into me
like a hook into an eye

a fish hook
an open eye

--Margaret Atwood
