A Few Writers on Poetry

April 6, 2011

Emily Dickinson

While searching for the perfect poem, I encountered this website (Poets’ Graves) with interesting quotes from well-known writers. Here are several I especially liked-

‘The poet is the priest of the invisible.’      Wallace Stevens

‘If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.’
Emily Dickinson

‘I consider myself a poet first and a musician second. I live like a poet and I’ll die like a poet.’    Bob Dylan

‘Poets aren’t very useful. / Because they aren’t consumeful or very produceful.’                Ogden Nash

Shira S.
