We do revere many acclaimed poets who will always be living and inspiring our days. John Keats, Percy Bysshe Shelley, William Wordsworth, W.B.Yeats, Edgar A. Poe, William Blake, William Shakespeare, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Rumi, Rabindranath Tagore, and the contemporary Naomi Shihab Nye, Jackie Kay, Andrew Motion, amidst others.
