I'm very fond of the vigorous poems of Alfred, Lord Tennyson. I realize that he's not all that popular these days.
I periodically re-read his Idylls of the King. He's also the author of "Charge of the Light Brigade" which I once showed to a friend who claimed not to like or understand poetry and he loved it instantly.
Is there anyone else out here with my kind of old fashioned taste and a love for Tennyson?
