A Quintuple of Poets: Part I

Sylvia Plath in 18th Century Romania    
could not read nor write-  
wasn't a poet;  
but, worked the farm instead;  
  sold livestock: chickens  
  cows, also pigs-    
    consoled each animal    
    before they were marketed    
    for slaughter    
Her lips tasted like feathers    
salt, and cold-blooded fish    
    because she kissed them deeply  
    upon departure;  
    or, so it's mongered -    
No one ever really got close enough  
  to personally confirm
