Well Versed
It must be in the air. A poetic convergence.

Matt Colvin quotes C.S. Lewis on appreciating Classical poetry in the original languages.

Doug Wilson laments the fact that boys today fail to appreciate poetry (see CA article on the topic).

Wilson also puts in a plug for Doug Jones' writing tutorial service. Jones' Scottish Seas (my favorite novel of his) is chock full of men reciting and composing poetry, including the psalms.
