I have found anthologies of poems by three poets of England. Yes, they are great: Shakespeare, Keats, E.Browning. I have once read the one of Shakespeare' sonett, that is XVIII."Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? " This is really beautiful and I like it. The citated two lines on Herald from E.Brownings are also good. I have translated them into Japanese with particular passion. But the world has not only poems in English but also those written in various languages and also beautiful as well. We Japanese have very beautiful poems, too. I'd like to introduce some my favorite ones to you. Two poem songs from "Tangled Hair" by Akiko Yosano(1878-1942): <blockquote><hr> Her hair flows through a comb in the darkst massiveness.

And one poem book of this kind includes several dozens of these short poem songs, and creates an organic world as well as Shakespeare's sonetts. They are written in Japanese as follows: Enjoy!
