Poetic Secret

Morning all!

Here we are again with another weekend ahead of us, and with another quote to start it off in the most creative way possible. Hope you enjoy it!

“The secret of understanding poetry is to hear poetry’s words as what they are: the full self’s most intimate speech, half waking, half dream. You listen to a poem as you might listen to someone you love who tells you their truest day. Their words might weep, joke, whirl, leap. What’s unspoken in the words will still be heard. It’s also the way we listen to music: You don’t look for extractable meaning, but to be moved.”

Beautifully put, wouldn’t you agree?
