Richard Wilbur is perhaps the last major American poet to keep working in rhyme and meter. His poems show the kind of craftsmanship about which you might justly say "they don't make them like that any more." His subjects range through the world and history, and from fear to love to sheer humor and delight. There aren't many poets writing these days whose poems you might want to memorize, but he is certainly one of them. His popularity seems to have waned some over the past few decades, yet his poems are sure to last and be rediscovered by future generations.
