The Best Poets in History - According to Virgo

Hello internettttt!

I've been away for a little while but I'm not going to lie or anything, it was because I couldn't be bothered to write a post. Also school's been very busy at the minute, anyway today I'm going to share with y'all my favourite poets and my favourite poems, these are all must reads in my opinion.

I'm going to start the list with Rupi Kaur and her infamous poetry book 'milk and honey'.

This book contains poems based around the theme of sex, even though that may not be for everyone, her poems are honestly some of the best I've ever read in my whole life, and even if the theme of her poems don't sound very appealing to you, none of them are graphic whatsoever, surprisingly.

Anyway, without further ado, here's the list (in no particular order):

1. Rupi Kaur
2. Sylvia Plath
3. Lewis Carroll
4. ClickForTaz (YouTube Channel)
5. William Shakespeare
6. E E Cummings
7. Rudyard Kipling
8. Oscar Wilde
9. Charles Dickens

My favourite poems:
1. Daddy - Sylvia Plath
2. The Munich Mannequins - Sylvia Plath
3. The Hanging Man - Sylvia Plath
4. The Moon and The Yew Tree - Sylvia Plath
5. Midweek Sessions - Rupi Kaur
6. The First Time - Rupi Kaur
7. Jabberwocky - Lewis Carroll
8. The Aged Aged Man - Lewis Carroll
9. FAT - ClickForTaz
10. Anxiety - ClickForTaz

If any of you have favourite poets/poems then share them in the comment section, and I'll start to post more from now on, I love you all!
