Top 10 Poems
What are the world’s most popular poems?
Between May 15th 2007, and March 21st, 2008, Classic Poetry Aloud had some half a million downloads from across the globe. This shows the most downloaded poems, and so the world’s most popular poems, to be:
1. She Walks in Beauty by Lord Byron
2. Ode to Autumn by John Keats
3. If by Rudyard Kipling
4. Sonnet 18: Shall I Compare Thee to a Summer’s Day? by William Shakespeare
5. Kubla Khan by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
6. How Do I Love Thee? by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
7. O Captain! My Captain! by Walt Whitman
8. Ozymandias by Percy Bysshe Shelley
9. Death by John Donne
10. Ode on a Grecian Urn by John Keats
I revised Shall I Compare Thee a year ago for an English assessment, used to know it but forgot it as soon as it wasn't needed.
I used to know Dulce et Decorum est as well.
