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)

    I know an Englishman,
    Being flattered, is a lamb; threatened, a lion.
    George Chapman c. 1559–1634, British dramatist, poet, translator. repr. In Plays and Poems of George Chapman: The Tragedies, ed. Thomas Marc Parrott (1910)

    You live by writing
    Your poems on a farm and call that farming.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
