Poetry and money outside the US

It's my impression that poetry is more respected in just about any country that isn't the US. Are there poets who are making a living from their poetry in other countries? It doesn't need to be an especially great living, but for purposes of this discussion, I'm talking about royalties from books of poetry and other media, and from poetry readings.

For purposes of this discussion, income from teaching doesn't count, though I realize that a poet might be making money both from poetry and other sources. If you can think of anyone whose poetry plausibly could support them, let me know.
