I remember reading 'The Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner' and 'The Albatross' in high-school English/Literature class. I didn't develop a real interest in poetry though until the early 1970s, and that's when I started writing. I'm not exactly prolific, and have always written only when I really felt like it.

I wasn't aware that poetry.com had went by the way-side until I got an email invitation from this resurrected version. The classic poets are all good, and I'd be hard-pressed to list more than a very few as favorites. Among those would be Poe, Shakespeare, Browning, Dickens....I also admire the writing of Khalil Gibran.
