Poets similar to Pablo Neruda?

Hey, guys, it seems that there is no designated location for poetry, so, I figured, "Heck, the pit?". I've been reading a lot of Pablo Neruda, and I have to say, he has the best poems that I have ever read, ever; the problem is, I can't find any poets, with as beautiful poetry, now. If you guys know of any poets, who write stunningly beautiful poetry, please share. I really need some more of this desolate, lovely mind bending stuff because, damn!

Thanks, guys!

Thanks, everyone! These are great, and I actually really like Silverstein's stuff. I hate how I forgot that he made serious poems, as well. Not that the other stuff sucks ha ha ha. I'll, also, make sure to check out the literature thread. I might find some cool stuff. Thanks, again.

You could try some William Pratt. Here's an example of his work:
“My soul is wrapped in harsh repose,
midnight descends in raven-colored clothes,
but soft…behold!
A sunlight beam
cutting a swath of glimmering gleam.
My heart expands,
’tis grown a bulge in it,
inspired by your beauty…
effulgent.”

Well apart from effulgent, there is no other word for gleaming that is even close to rhyming with "bulge in it". I believe he suffered from similar problems when he wrote The wanton folly of me Mum
