I'm taking a creative writing class, and we're currently doing poetry. Problem is, the teacher's all about "modern poetry", whereas I like the old fashioned type- rhyme, meter, all that. Are there any good living poets who still write like that?

You might want to have a look at a http://www.poemtree.com, they have some contemporary poets and their work. Nothing I found superb or breath taking, but I'm a fussy bugger.

We get had a few poets at some of the juggling conventions I've been to in the last few years. I was blown away by one of them, but his name eludes me. Sorry about the lack of point to this paragraph. I'll have a search, sleep can wait.

I hate poems, love short stories. Hate poems. I did a whole lot about immigration, ancestors and the concept of belonging. They don't rhyme but your teacher might like them.

Called Immigrant chronicles by Peter Skrzynecki.

A modern poem:

Quote:
WINTER Poem

It's winter in South Dakota
And the gentle breezes blow
Seventy miles an hour
At thirty-five below.

Oh, how I love South Dakota
When the snow's up to your butt
You take a breath of winter
And your nose gets frozen shut.

Yes, the weather here is wonderful
So I guess I'll hang around
I could never leave South Dakota
I'm frozen to the friggin' ground!

I found this Beautiful Aussie Summer poem and thought it might be a comfort to you. It was to me, and it's very well written; I hope you enjoy it because it's the best piece of English literature I've seen in quite a while....
