Poetry is the opening and closing of a door, leaving those who look through to guess about what is seen during the moment.
Poetry is the revelation of a feeling that the poet believes to be interior and personal which the reader recognizes as his own.
A poet is, before anything else, a person who is passionately in love with language.
W. H. Auden
God is the perfect poet.
He who draws noble delights from sentiments of poetry is a true poet, though he has never written a line in all his life.
