E. E. Cummings was gone before I could read.
long gone. As was Lewis Carroll of The Mouse's Tale.
Last year I learned Frank Herbert of Dune and Dosadi was a poet.
Earlier today I read that Thomas Lux passed on this February.
The Atlantic of February ten online has an article by Jennifer Adams.

What poetry guides your magic?

Among the dead, Stephen Crane tops my list, but Frost, Sandburg, Eliot, and Yeats are chasing him closely.

In the Living Poets Society, Dorianne Laux.

Shelley and Yeats figure prominently in the mythical infrastructure of my imaginitive life. Milton is on the horizon, appearing, then retreating like a desert mirage.
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

This thread brought "Paradise Lost" back up from the basement. Thanks Jon. I think.

Kipling.
Rod McKuen (I know, I'm not cool).
Langston Hughes. (Maybe, a little cool.)
Edna Saint Vincent Millay.
Some of the poetry that came from the WW I poets - Sassoon, Seeger, Owen, Rosenberg, all brilliant.

Don't know if slam poetry counts in this thread... But this was an award winner, and my all time favorite for obvious reasons.

Magic is like Science,
Both are fun if you do it right!
