I love poetry. Absolutly love it. It stirs my soul in a way that I almost don't understand myself. It can make me feel about ten different things at once. This year I want to read and write more poetry...simply because I enjoy it so much.
A word is dead when it is said, some say. I say it just begins to live that day.
Anger as soon as fed is dead - 'Tis starving makes it fat.
Beauty is not caused. It is.
I do not like the man who squanders life for fame; give me the man who living makes a name.
If I read a book and it makes my whole body so cold no fire can ever warm me, I know that is poetry.
There is no Frigate like a book to take us lands away nor any coursers like a page of prancing Poetry.
To live is so startling it leaves little time for anything else.
Truth is so rare that it is delightful to tell it.
