Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe has officially surpassed Misao Fujimura as my favorite poet. If any of you enjoy poetry I highly recommend his work from publisher Penguin Classics titled "Selected Poetry", it is a fantastic read!

I don't know.... I usually grab three penguin classics books a month, so I'll check it out next time I go to the bookstore. Isn't Fujimura a Haiku writer though?

No, he was just a student in Japan who wrote a suicide poem on a tree. It wouldn't be accurate to say he is a Haiku writer though. As for Goethe, I just enjoy his work alot. I'm still just starting to embrace the world of poetry though. It's important to note that I am not claiming he is the best out of everyone, just that he is currently my favorite.
