Women poets

People have been posting lists of 10 women poets for UK poetry day, so here's one from me even though it's the next day here and I'm not there, if you see what I mean. :-)

Sheenagh Pugh
Kapka Kassabova
Sappho
Sylvia Plath
Lauris Edmond (I had a crush on her son when I was at school)
Anna Akhmatova
Fleur Adcock
Katherine Mansfield
Janet Frame
Fiona Kidman

I've been interested to see what different lists people have posted, and that some people I thought of as novelists appeared in their lists.
