045. Explore poetry

To complete this goal:  Read at least 5 poems by 10 poets- preferably poets who write in different styles/time periods.  Some ideas include Frank O'Hara, Archibald McLeash, William Blake, Ogden Nash, Robert Frost, Walt Whitman, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Shel Silverstein, and Margaret Atwood.

Why?  I'm trying to push myself outside my comfort zone in the things I read or watch, hence many of the goals in this section.  I've never really tried very hard to explore poetry, but I remember enjoying those units in middle school and this is something I feel like could be very exciting to delve into.
