A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness.
A true poet does not bother to be poetical. Nor does a nursery gardener scent his roses.
All bad poetry springs from genuine feeling.
Even when poetry has a meaning, as it usually has, it may be inadvisable to draw it out… Perfect understanding will sometimes almost extinguish pleasure.
A. E. Housman
Breathe-in experience, breathe-out poetry.
Every single soul is a poem.
