Here is a collection of most beautiful English verse, sonnets, poetry - romantic, war and nature. The page contains altogether some of the most delightful English poetry collections ever written in History. I plan to add most of the poetry that I came across and read and re-read. Poetry written by great poets such as William Wordsworth, Robert Browning, Emily Brontë, John Keats and so many others are worth being part of a collection and you can just read them again and again whenever you wish to.
