POETS' HELP READERS TO ELEVATE

  




 The true poet , whatever his range and quality, is one in whom the power of seeing and feeling the sensuous beauty and spiritual meaning of things exists in  pre eminent degree, and to whom, more -over, another special power has been granted -the power of so expressing and interpreting what he sees and feels as to quicken our own imaginations and sympathies, and to make us see and feel with him.

This is a great service that the poet renders to us is that of "awakening the mind's attention to the lethargy of custom, and directing it to the loveliness and wonders of the world before us ." For this we need to be indebted to them for ever .

On this world poetry day let  us salute those great souls who made us to observe around by they being "makers -see" and "a priest to us all of the wonder and bloom of the world."

We should treat poets' as teachers and moralist, because we know that in his/her hands the truths of life and conduct will acquire a higher potency and value.   

Reading the words of  Samuel Taylor Coleridge, let us pledge to remember both the poet and their poetry.

   "I wish our clever young poets would remember my homely definitions of prose and poetry; that is prose; words in their best order; – poetry; the best words in the best order. "


HAPPY WORLD POETRY DAY to all the lovers of poetry. On this occasion I recited a poem today, Do listen to it.
