Poetry

So I was wondering, do you guys like poetry? Here's one of my current favorites

Ozymandias
I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: `Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed.
And on the pedestal these words appear --
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.'
- Percy Bysshe Shelley

What are some of your favorites? I'm interested to see what other people like or if they even enjoy poetry in general.

Poetry is nice at times, but it can get dull if it's continuous reading of poetry.
I sort of have trouble empathizing.

I can't say that I have an exact favorite... (considering the fact I almost barely listen to poetry), but I have a favorite poetic. His name is Shane Koyczan, the one who created the "To This Day" poem. His poems helps take away depression in some sort of way.

EDIT: Here's his "To This Day Project" poem just in case you never heard it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ltun92DfnPY
