Poetry Is…

Poetry Is…

Poetry is the most encompassing of all our endeavours, for in it’s carefully charted verses are all of the plots and course of our great journey. Our passions, our sorrows, our loves and pains, our idle trifles amd our most sublime understandings, are ruled in poetry’s lines of thought, straits of reason and seas of emotion. It is our most expressive artifice, constructed with immaculate effort to flow without it, crafted with perfect care to provoke carelessly, composed of feet and figures to embody in words our most abstract ideas and tender feelings. It is all that we are and all that we can dream to be.
