Importance of Poetry

Poetry is a literary work in verse writing of high quality, great beauty, a piece of art, with emotional sincerity or intensity, a graceful expression showing imagination and deep feeling with beautiful and elegant quality. … He is an imaginative, a creative and artistic person.

Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash.  ― Leonard Cohen

Everything around us has music and poetry, it is the source of energy and inspiration and life. We were the fools who took so long to understand its importance; We were the fools who didn’t pay heed when the great minds around us told us.

Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It’s that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that’s what the poet does.                                                                                                                                               — Allen Ginsberg
