What are some great poems? Read details...

I'm in 10 AP English and I'm working on my writer's notebook entries. For one of them, I need to use a poem. My teacher says: "Select a poem, and then show it to me for approval. Summarize the poem. Then focus on the form; are there any patterns in stanzas, rhyme scheme, repetition, etc? What's your opinion of the poem? Explain. Identify poetic terms that are utilized in the poem, and state the purpose of those terms. Make sure to include specific examples from the poem to support your statements." My entries need to be four pages long. (Front, back, front, back.) Thanks! ;o

James Douglas Morrison, Seeker Of The Truth by Cummings, I know Why The Caged Bird Sings by Angelou, anything by Shakespeare, Romance by Edgar Allen Poe, Let America Be America Again by Hughes, Where The Sidewalk Ends by Silverstein, A Red Red Rose by Burns could be a few. hope that helped.

Hugh Prather is a favorite of mine. Perhaps, one of his would be worthy of your consideration. Unfortunately, most of his poems are short in length.

As a pilot this was always handy-
I know that I shall meet my fate
Somewhere among the clouds above;
Those that I fight, I do not hate,
Those that I guard I do not love;
My country is Kiltartan Cross,
My countrymen Kiltartan's poor,
No likely end could bring them loss
Or leave them happier than before.
Nor law, nor duty bade me fight,
Nor public men, nor cheering crowds,
A lonely impulse of delight
Drove to this tumult in the clouds;
I balanced all, brought all to mind,
The years to come seemed waste of breath,
A waste of breath the years behind
In balance with this life, this death.
Yates

Check out some stuff by Billy Collins; he's a lot of fun :) Sylvia Plath can be really interesting too- my favorite from her is Mad Girl's Love Song.

1)The road not taken - Robert Frost ( http://www.bartleby.com/119/1.html )
2)A soldier's tale - ( it's written by me ) ( http://madhurkaushik.wordpress.com/2012/08/08/a-soldiers-tale/ )
This poem depicts a soldier who is grown up in rural area and posted at field, he dies in military encounter, read and understand )
3)Lord Ullin's daughter - Thomas Campbell ( http://www.poemhunter.com/poem/lord-ullin-s-daughter/ )
4) Home they brought her warrior dead - Lord Alfred Tennyson

( Poem - Home they brought her warrior dead:
? She nor swooned, nor uttered cry:
All her maidens, watching, said,
? 'She must weep or she [will]1 die.'

Then they praised him, soft and low,
? Called him worthy to be loved,
Truest friend and noblest foe;
? Yet she neither spoke nor moved.

Stole a maiden from her place,
? Lightly to the warrior stept,
Took the face-cloth from the face;
? Yet she neither moved nor wept.

Rose a nurse of ninety years,
? Set his child upon her knee --
Like summer tempest came her tears --
? 'Sweet my child, I live for thee.' )
