I do love The Raven but I would say Ulalume is my favourite.

The only real poetry I ever read was when I was doing GCSE English Lit, but I did like Seamus Heaney's stuff.

That is an epic poem, one of the best of the Romantic era.
Not sure I agree with your assertion about the sex of poetry tho

Charles Olson.

"But that which matters, that which insists, that which will last,
that! o my people, where shall you find it, how, where, where shall you listen
when all is become billboards, when, all, even silence, is spray-gunned?

when even our bird, my roofs,
cannot be heard

when even you, when sound itself is neoned in?"

Is it weird that I love Yeats but am not the greatest fan of Auden...?

Nah, some of Auden's poems are definitely contrived and terrible. I think the poets themselves didn't like each other. I prefers Yeats but some Auden poems are among my favourites.
