I don't know if you guys have read Seamus Heaney, but we did a section on him senior year of high school, and I very much appreciated his style of writing. It takes a whole lot to get me into poetry, but I dove headfirst into Heaney and loved it.

My friend meet sheamus Heaney cause her friend is a niece of his or something (ireland is small place!) I did his poetry for my final exams in secondary (high school) his poetry is excellent - i love it. He's like the number one living irish poet.
Is there any poem in particular you liked? you can post it if you here if you want - i always liked the poem 'skunk'
I'm more of a fan of dark poetry like emily dickinson, christina rosetti and elizabeth barrett browning.
