Who's your fav poet? I enjoy William Blake and Tennyson, but I have a soft spot for William Barnes.

John Donne, I went through a phase of reading his complete works.

But the most amazing poetry I have ever heard is Bob Dylan, Mr Tambourine Man... the verses... by god the verses! Can lyrics be poetry, indeed.

TS Eliot, followed closely by WB Yeats.

I should have been a pair of ragged claws
Scuttling across the floors of silent seas.

Ah! Two of the very best. The Waste Land and Sailing to Byzantium are magnificent.

Many of the classic and modern poets, many of the old favourites, especially Edgar Allan Poe and John Cooper Clarke.
