Outstanding poems from various parts of the world. Alphabetically sorted, by title, while ignoring articles (a/the).

Be that as it may, even if the verses don't hold exactly the same power as they do in their native language, they are remarkable and, therefore, included.
Certain favorites are marked, in one way or another.
