I came in touch with his great poetry only when I had the opportunity to read Meghadootam in Sanskrit and also Kumarasambhavam. He would be regarded as world's greatest poet in Sanskrit as wellas of ancient civilisations.
He is simply Incomparable.
Look to this day: For it is life, the very life of life. In its brief course Lie all the verities and realities of your existence. The bliss of growth, The glory of action, The splendour of achievement Are but experiences of time.
