Cannot live without it

The poet’s job is to put into words those feelings we all have that are so deep, so important, and yet so difficult to name, to tell the truth in such a beautiful way, that people cannot live without it.  – Jane Kenyon

It is difficult to get the news from poems yet men die miserably every day for lack of what is found there. – William Carlos Williams

  1. I love teaching poetry…mainly because most teens think they can’t ‘get it’. When they take it apart, look it as lyrics or simply words, they find their own meaning.
