Who Is Your Favorite Poet and What Is Your Favorite Poem By Them?

I like Edgar Allan Poe as well and also Mihai Eminescu, a romanian poet.

I Like GLOSS and TO THE STAR by Eminescu . You cand find his poems at the links below

GLOSS

Days go past, and days come still,

All is old and all is new,

What is well and what is ill,

You imagine and construe

Do not hope and do not fear,

Waves that leap like waves must fall;

Should they praise or should they jeer,

Look but coldly on it all.

WHAT IS LOVE...

What is love? A lifetime spent

Of days that pain does fill,

That thousand tears can’t content,

But asks for tears still.

With but a little glance coquet

Your soul it knows to tie,

That of it’s spell you can’t forget

Until the day you die.

FAIR LOVE

Maybe indeed there is no room

In a world filled with distress,

Midst so much grief, and so much gloom,

For so much happiness.

EMPEROR AND PROLETARIAN

The seed of a whole world of greatness and desire

At hazard have been sown within the hearts of all;

And when their time is come, their nature does aspire

After a perfect fruit, with all its strength entire;

Yet ere the fruit be ripe, the blossoms often fall.

Thus is the human fruit oft frozen in the bloom;

One man becomes a king, another but a slave,

Covering with chaos their different lots too soon,

Before the morning sun their works like petals strewn;

Yet nature to them all an equal knowledge gave.

When you but recollect that death will end this dream,

That nothing much is changed the day your life is passed,

This struggling desire to right the world will seem

Folly, and you'll grow tired; but one thing true you'll deem:

That life is but the way to endless death at last

Tamil Brahmins have done yeoman’s service to the language Tamil

Tamil Brahmins have done yeoman's service to the language Tamil.Don't they glorify it more wherever they go?

The question's greatness beautifies well from your great way of presentation. All are asking questions including me, but the questions we ask should be a meaningful, contains a lot of informations is the matter and in this regard, i feel personally that you did not brought a question, sorry but your open heart. How many of us learned from you.? This is called knowledge. This is called spread of knowledge in yahoo answers. All are saying ''spreading knowledge'' and ''learning knowledge'' and they did not say the knowledge or teach the knowledge and only very few sow the seed of knowledge and you are coming in this list. These days are spread a kind of hatred, but a great subject cleverly shown by you is not an ordinary affair. Though i have no age to appreciate, but please acknowledge my heart felt appreciations.

This is not first time i am telling. you can see just 2 months back my answers.

my recent answer just a week before

Answer continues. All know pretty well that the Brahmins services in all fields like language, poetry, drama, carnatic music, freedom fight (vanchi, sub siva, bharati, satyamurti, c.rajagopalachari, r.v. and many more) and their participation still now in media (kalki, vikatan, jr vikatan, kalaimagal,Thuglak, and manjari (considered as readers digest etc.,) Taking law, there too they shined well. Still today you can find justice muthusamy Ayyar statue in high court complex. An important matter contains in this question. That is they fear of God and heart. They concentrate a subject because they believe the subject. They stood like a tree in the midst of strom. They faced opposition, and got an art of changing into positive. Taking kathakalaksheba, we saw Sengalipuram Anantharama Deekshidar, the great actor Mouli's father KSBalakrishna sastrigal and many more. The opening of temples for harijans, the brahmins stood first. The good example was Madurai vaidyanatha iyer. Then, all know the history created by the then Diwon of Travancore sir c.p.ramasamy iyer. In promoting the Tamil language ''' yaam arindha mozhigalile Thamizh mozhi pola inidhavadhengum kaanom ''. Ena muzhangiya Bharati. we are now seeing more and many are giving speech that they are the reasons for the growth of the language, Tamil. That is all not true. Here i saw many answers about Thamizh Thaththa Vu.Ve.swaminatha iyer, so i don't want to repeat it since all know his sufferings to bring back the glory of tamil. Let the wold tell any writer equal to ''kalyani krishnamurti'', we called ''kaliki'' who brought beautiful uncomparable history novels like '' partiban kanavu '', the great ''ponniyin selvan'', ''sivakami sapadham''. etc.,His contribution to the Tamil language is no one give in the past and no one will give in future.

so, Tamil Brahmins shined in all fields including cenema, where we saw Gemini Vaasan, director subramanian, the present day kamal haasan, the love king Gemini ganesan, the raven of ravan mani ratnam, k.balachandar, s.balachandar. i can bring more and more details but i will surely share if you bring more questions like this, and your contributions should not stop with brahmins alone and you should bring more about other Tamil castes too is my wish.

They will shine well wherever they go and also glorify.

Do you believe ’Good things happen to good people’?

Do you believe 'Good things happen to good people'?

No

our world is ruled by chance

"The seed of a whole world of greatness and desire

At hazard have been sown within the hearts of all;

And when their time is come, their nature does aspire

After a perfect fruit, with all its strength entire;

Yet ere the fruit be ripe, the blossoms often fall.

Thus is the human fruit oft frozen in the bloom;

One man becomes a king, another but a slave,

Covering with chaos their different lots too soon,

Before the morning sun their works like petals strewn;

Yet nature to them all an equal knowledge gave.

Throughout the length of time, different and still the same

Their yearnings and their hopes are of one kind composed,

And though of countless fashions does seem life's secret flame,

All are alike deceived that call upon her name;

While infinite desire is in an atom closed.

When you but recollect that death will end this dream,

That nothing much is changed the day your life is passed,

This struggling desire to right the world will seem

Folly, and you'll grow tired; but one thing true you'll deem:

That life is but the way to endless death at last. "

Emperor and Proletarian

With the selfsame scales and gauges

This great universe to weigh,

Man has been for thousand ages

Sometimes sad and sometimes gay;

Other masks, the same old story,

Players pass and reappear,

Broken promises of glory;

Do not hope and do not fear.

Gloss by Mihai Eminescu
