The First Poets

Morning all!
I came across this quote earlier today and wanted to share it with you-
“I think that we’re beginning to remember that the first poets didn’t come out of a classroom, that poetry began when somebody walked off of a savanna or out of a cave and looked up at the sky with wonder and said, ‘Ahhh.’ That was the first poem.”
It’s a refreshing viewpoint and a great reminder that poetry existed long before the romantic era and well before any established forms or formal teaching in the literacy existed.
