Read
92 printed pages
Here are some of the most-loved poems in the English language, chosen not merely for their popularity, but for their literary quality as well. Dating from the Middle Ages to the 20th century, these splendid poems remain evergreen in their capacity to engage our minds and refresh our spirits.
Among them are Marlowe: “The Passionate Shepherd to His Love”; Shakespeare: “Sonnet XVIII” («Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?”); Donne: “Holy Sonnet X” («Death, be not proud”); Marvell: “To His Coy Mistress”; Wordsworth: “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud”; Shelley: “Ode to the West Wind”; Longfellow: “The Children's Hour”; Poe: “The Raven”; Tennyson: “The Charge of the Light Brigade”; Whitman: “O Captain! My Captain!”; Dickinson: “This Is My Letter to the World”; Yeats: “When You Are Old”; Frost: “The Road Not Taken”; Millay: “First Fig.”
Works by many other poets — Milton, Blake, Burns, Coleridge, Byron, Keats, Emerson, the Brownings, Hardy, Housman, Kipling, Pound, and Auden among them — are included in this treasury, a perfect companion for quiet moments of reflection.

Longer poems (such as John Milton’s Paradise Lost), which contain some of the finest writing in the language, are excluded for want of space.

Sonnet CXVI
Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O, no! it is an ever-fixed mark,
That looks on tempests and is never
