Too difficult to name just three novels or poets. If you look at my Top Ten which is now 18, you will see the books that are my favorites. There is no question that Ursula Hegi's Floating in My Mother's Palm is my favorite. As for the rest, they are favorites for different reasons. I'm too eclectic a reader to really stay forcused on just a few. Theodore Roethke is my favorite post. But I am more attracted to a specific poem. So I have many poets I love. To name a few May Sarton, Rilke, Borges, Billy Collins, May Swensen, Yeats, Dylan Thomas, Robert Frost, Stanley Kunitz, Poe, R. Jeffers, Langston Hughes, Kenyon, Ingrid Wendt, M. Kumin, W. Berry, Yusef Komunyakaa, D. Anderson, Millay, Dickinson, T. Hardy, Neruda, Paz, Wm. Stafford, S. Alexie, Auden, Keats, Milton, Sandburg, cummings.....see what I mean. I could go on and on. My favorite poem is by Robinson Jeffers, "Inscription for a Gravestone". You can find it and other wonderful poems on the Wild Iris group here at Shelfari. A few of them I have put on, so you can get a sense of what I like. Happy Reading.
