Members' Rating: from 4 Ratings
The muses are singing in this Poetry Sampler, which brings together tastes of the very best in verse. From Alexander Pope’s sharp wit to Poe’s dark, macabre vision, the poems sampled here are as diverse as they are fascinating. Famous Shakespearean sonnets contrast with the unique, bizarre beauty of Emily Dickinson’s poetry, and iconic writers like John Keats, Walt Whitman, and Oscar Wilde each offer their own distinct pleasures. Sample them all to find the poets whose writing moves you, whose words elevate your soul to the realm of the sublime.
What’s a Book Sampler?
Book Samplers combine short excerpts from different books, and they’re designed to make discovering and selecting new books on DailyLit easier. They are created around unique topics to help readers find new books in categories they enjoy. Each book installment featured in the Book Samplers contains a link that lets readers instantly access the book on DailyLit to read or send as a gift using DailyLit’s gift feature. Readers can also easily add the book to their To-Read list on the DailyLit site. Reading a Book Sampler is like browsing in your favorite section of the bookstore—it’s a fun way to find that next great book. We’ll be updating the Samplers as we get new books, so you can keep up with what’s new in your favorite categories.

Opening Lines (Experimental)
For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.
I lean and loafe at my ease observing a spear of summer grass.
Hoping to cease not till death.
Nature without check with original energy.
The distillation would intoxicate me also, but I shall not let it.
I am mad for it to be in contact with ...
