Why read poetry? #2

“[O]ne of the reasons to invite poetry into our lives… [is] to meet our invisible guests—grief, joy, anger, doubt, and confusion. We read poetry from this deep hunger to know ourselves and the world.”

“…poetry is the genre of the inner life; therefore, the first, and most important, poetry door is the door of our hearts.” —Georgia Heard
