Poetry is a form of art in which language is used to reveal, interpret, or express things which would otherwise be difficult to express. Poetry moves, speaks, and is written. Whether life, love, nature, or humor, poetry has been used to interpret it. What life cannot express, poetry does. What love cannot articulate, poetry does. What nature and humor cannot say, poetry does in a way that does not duplicate, but complements. Poetry is an interpreter of life.

Poetry: A Pure Definition
Poetry is a careful, inventive, or creative consideration of words written in order to convey some thought as a literary arrangement. Usually, but not always, the words written are designed to evoke emotion. Poetry can manifest itself as a two-word phrase, spoken word, or a one thousand-page book.
"An accurate taste in poetry, and in all the other arts, Sir Joshua Reynolds has observed, is an acquired talent, which can only be produced by severe thought, and a long continued intercourse with the best models of composition."
--William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge
"I decided that it was not wisdom that enabled poets to write their poetry, but a kind of instinct or inspiration, such as you find in seers and prophets who deliver all their sublime messages without knowing in the least what they mean."
"Poetry has to be something more than a conception of the mind. It has to be a revelation of nature. Conceptions are artificial. Perceptions are essential."
