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
