Please be sure to vote in next month's poll. We have a tight three-way tie between the top contenders.  The winner will run alongside our female featured poet, Rupi Kaur.

That would now be a two-way tie now. Gonna be a tight one between Hughes and Eliot.

Greetings, CC supporters, September will feature T.S. Eliot and Rupi Kaur!

October will feature our close second in this month's poll, Langston Hughes.  If there is a female classic you would like to see featured alongside him, please feel free to suggest one for next month's poll.

Thank you, as always for supporting the Classic Corner. 📝❤

Great recommendation.  I will definitely include her in next month's poll.  

To all: even if you've previously nominated a female poet who didn't win their respective poll, please feel free to re-nominate them.

How about
Joyce Carol Oates

a Favorite spill of mine by her:
Poetry Is the Gnomic Utterance from Which the Soul Springs, Fluttering

https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poetrymagazine/poems/92388/poetry-is-the-gnomic-utterance-from-which-the-soul-springs-fluttering

Maybe too close to today's US difficulty with guns and shit related.  I can offer up other writers, if You'd like.

For September's Classic Corner choice of female poet, how about one of the following?

Imtiaz Dharker? (b.1954, Pakistani-born British poet & documentary film-maker) {http://www.imtiazdharker.com/poems}

Carol Ann Duffy? (b.1955, poet laureate from 2009-2019) {https://www.scottishpoetrylibrary.org.uk/poet/carol-ann-duffy/}

Kathleen Jamie? (b.1962, Scottish poet) {https://www.scottishpoetrylibrary.org.uk/poet/kathleen-jamie/}

... as three U.K poets.

(NB: This might be the last chance to use the phrase "U.K poets" before the U.K disintegrates in Brexit on 31st October)

Of the three, so as not to overload the choice, I'd recommend Carol Ann Duffy for first consideration.

Josh.

Excellent suggestions, all.  Tallen, of course you may!  

Josh, that is so sad about "U.K. poets".  It's so difficult to comprehend the U.K. disintegrating!

While I'm logged on for a short while I want to take this opportunity to mention a poetess who some of us brought up about maybe two months ago - we weren't officially nominating at the time, but now I would like to be one who nominates the following and perhaps this will remind the others:

Edna St Vincent Millay

Thank you, dear Ahavati.

Blessed and blessings,
Kathy

Yes; thank you both! I thought it would be easier to start a new nomination rather than go back through months of threads to pull them!  I'm glad I did with all these great nominations!
