Where can you find poems with more than one meaning?

Poems with Multiple Meanings

Few, if any pieces of poetry have one, singular, 'correct' interpretation. In fact, it would be something of a find if there were such a thing. Even a single stanza, or even a single LINE of a single poem can be impossible to interpret by one, sole definition. The beauty of art is the endless different ways a single piece can be undertood and appreciated.

You can find a wealth of books subsuming poetry at your book store, local libary or online. You can even find lots of good poetry for free online, merely by typing the names of poems or poets into a search engine. If you are looking for good poets, you might try the following:
