  4. 4. Writers Say  “Poems are not language, but the content of the language” (Mary Oliver).  “It is a kind of possible love affair between something like the heart (that courageous but also shy factor of emotion) and the learned skills of the conscious mind” (Mary Oliver).  “Poetry is a river; many voices travel in it; poem after poem moves along in the exciting crests and falls of the river waves” (Mary Oliver).
  5. 5. Writers Say  “Poetry is memorable speech” (W.H. Auden).  “Poems obey no rules and serve no single purpose; rather they adapt to the distinct needs of specific times and individual poets… Any definition we formulate precludes others and imprisons us prematurely in a partial understanding of poetry” (Carol Burke and Molly Best Tinsley).
  6. 6. Writers Say  “an extreme emotional passage that runs throughout the human body internally releasing the full extent of one’s true being” (Jose C.)
