Lyrics Of Life~The Book Of Poetry
What is the definition of a Poem?
"A piece of writing that partakes of the nature of both speech and song" -Dictionary.
"A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. A poem begins in delight and ends in wisdom." -Robert Frost .
"Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular."-Aristotle.
"With me poetry has not been a purpose, but a passion."-Edgar Allan Poe.
When I think poetry I think of a jeweled lesson, a soundless song, a silent dream, a daring death, a sad smile, a loved lost,
