Poetry in theWORDshop



"Poetry is the journal of the sea animal living on land, wanting to fly in the air. Poetry is a search for syllables to shoot at the barriers of the unknown and the unknowable. Poetry is a phantom script telling how rainbows are made and why they go away."

~~~Carl Sandburg, Poetry Considered, The Atlantic Monthly, March 1923 ~~~
