The Vatican has its Necropolis; Poemhunter, a World Poetry Archive. Welcome & Congratulations! Intrepid Traveler you've just found one of Poemhunter's most valued, buried, treasured, chests! So, traveler less roaded, are you a Rhodes traveler too?

A very talented poet, whose poems are always beautifully penned, not only through the choice of the words (mostly far beyond relevance) , but also through the thoughts these poems carry... and the sense of humour. Some of these pieces can be considered as masterpieces.

It is not surprising to find Jonathan Robin among the top hundred most popular poets on Poemhunter... and apparently he has also 10 poems ranked in the top 20 out of 4 million on allpoetry. Looking at his biography one is surprised that he finds time to write in such a diversity of traditional styles on so many subjects, both contemporary and classical. One is confused by the number of poems nominally on poemhunter - less than 1400 compared to more than two thousand in his poetry book apparently available for download. As written in one of the comments below 'This gent has experimented with every possible poetic medium out there and with exceptional results.' - one can only agree and applaud.
