Welcome to March's Classic Corner poll!  These names were taken from the previous list for male and female poets.  If there is a poet you wish to see featured, PLEASE ADD THEIR NAME TO THIS POST, and we'll feature them in next month's poll.

The top female and male will be featured next month.

Here is a list of poets we have already held challenges about and earned themes for, so keep in mind there is no point in recommending them:
