Musings, Nits, and Praises: One Reason Poetry (and Literature in General) Matters

Musings, Nits, and Praises

A farrago of all things deemed blog-worthy by a music-loving, poetry-writing, humor-seeking English teacher


One Reason Poetry (and Literature in General) Matters

from William Carlos Williams' "Asphodel, That Greeny Flower":

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