Quote of the Day, 11/10/06: The Poem

It's Poetry Friday, when many of the children's lit bloggers post poetry (or post about poetry) and those of us who love poetry get to feast on it all day. Today's quotes are about poetry. The Poetry Friday round-up is in the next post down.

Robert Penn Warren
The poem is a little myth of man's capacity of making life meaningful. And in the end, the poem is not a thing we see --it is, rather, a light by which we may see -- and what we see is life.

Franz Grillparzer
The spirit of poetry combines the profundity of the philosopher and the child’s delight in bright pictures.
