Poetry is a special use of language. A poem leaps from the heart into the mind, then dances onto the page. A poem is a song that traps a mood or spirit or a wild flight of fancy. A poem is made from words that are given music by their rhythm. The rhythm may be tightly ordered and very regular. Or the rhythm may come from special phrasings and be very irregular. But the words themselves are probably most important. The poet carefully chooses only the most apt words. Both poet and reader share the affair. If you are interested in words, and in life and people, you probably like poetry -- at least some poetry. If that description matches you, you will like this book. In the pages that follow, you are likely to find some of your old favorites and meet some new friends as well. (from inside book).
