Poems

Famous quotes containing the word poems:

    After all, poets shouldn’t be their own interpreters and shouldn’t carefully dissect their poems into everyday prose; that would mean the end of being poets. Poets send their creations into the world, it is up to the reader, the aesthetician, and the critic to determine what they wanted to say with their creations.
    Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)

    The genuine remains of Ossian, or those ancient poems which bear his name, though of less fame and extent, are, in many respects, of the same stamp with the Iliad itself. He asserts the dignity of the bard no less than Homer, and in his era, we hear of no other priest than he.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I tell it stories now and then
    and feed it images like honey.
    I will not speculate today
    with poems that think they’re money.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
