There are so many wonderful poems to choose from it is
difficult to know where to make a start! We have
therefore devised a Top 20 List of our favourite poems.
It was an extremely difficult task and obviously our
choice, in the end, was based on personal preferences!
We hope that the list will provide our readers with as
much pleasure that these famous verses have given to us.
A good knowledge of these famous verses will provide all
students and children with a good grounding of the
subject. Each poet has a different style of writing
making expert use of the English language. We have been
asked on many occasions which is our favourite poem.
Impossible! Writing styles, subject matter and even
childhood memories influence choices, so we gave up and
endeavoured to, at least, compile a list of our top
twenty famous and favourite poems! The first line of the
famous verse has been included to jog the memory! Please
refer to the Index for the Top 20 list!
