at home with ann



Search for yourself, by yourself.   Do not allow others to make your path for you.    It is your road, and yours alone. Others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you
Unknown Native American


All bad poetry springs from genuine feeling.
Oscar Wilde

You don’t have to suffer to be a poet; adolescence is enough suffering for anyone.
John Ciardi

Poetry is thoughts that breathe, and words that burn.
Thomas Gray

Poetry is what gets lost in translation.
Robert Frost

Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.
Robert Frost

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness.
Robert Frost

A poem is never finished only abandoned.
Paul Valery

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it is not the expression of personality, but an escape from personality. But, of course, only those who have personality and emotions know what it means to want to escape from these things.
T. S. Eliot
