Growing up I always hated poetry... now that I am older I am beginning to have a feel for it. I adore Sylvia Plath and Robert Frost .. probably pretty generic right?Help a newbie out? :3

In order to appreciate the poetry, learn about the Authors. I chose Langston Hughes as my personal favorite because he was half white, half black during the American civil rights movement and felt he belonged to neither group. You can see that in his poetry. :)[sorry, I'm a wee bit passionate about poetry, lol]
You'd probably really like William Blake... Most people who like Plath and Frost like Blake too. "London" is my favorite I'm also a huge fan of T. S. Eliot, but his style is way different than the afore mentioned poets

Hi, there's an Australian poet called Kenneth Slessor and his poems are great, they mostly talk about time and the individual. :D happy reading

I adore Sylvia Plath too ;) Have you ever read Anne Sexton poems? Or if you can read it in english look for Halina Poświatowska poetry. She was polish and she studied in this same college like Sylvia Plath. And you can like William Blake too.

If you want something modern, I could recommend "Lulu's songs and speeches", but I'm not sure if it has been translated to English. On the other hand, when it comes to poetry it's probably best to read in the origina language.
I adore Sylvia Plath too and the best bet is Anne Sexton since she and Sylvia Plath have that hard-core melancholic feel to their poems. A tip to appreciate a poem: read it aloud. There's something in them that hits you right on the heart which makes poetry cool and incredible.

don't forget about julia corpus, she's recently released a collection called 'the world's two smallest humans' and it's just such an emotional experience. if you want something a bit more challenging, 'the love song of j. alfred prufrock' by ts eliot is just incredible all around :) hope that helps!
