is the journal of the sea animal living on land, wanting to
fly in the air. Poetry is a search for syllables to shoot at
the barriers of the unknown and the unknowable. Poetry is a
phantom script telling how rainbows are made and why they go
away. Poetry is an echo, asking a shadow to dance - Carl Sandburg..........Poetry
should be great and unobtrusive, a thing which enters into one's
soul, and does not startle it or amaze it with itself, but with
its subject - John Keats .........Poetry is the breath and finer
spirit of all knowledge - William Wordsworth ..........Poets
utter great and wise things which they do not themselves understand
- Plato .........No man was ever yet a great poet, without being
at the same time a profound philosopher. For poetry is the blossom
and the fragrance of all human knowledge, human thoughts, human
passions, emotions, language - Samuel Taylor Coleridge .........One
demands two things of a poem. Firstly, it must be a well-made
verbal object that does honor to the language in which it is
written. Secondly, it must say something significant about a
reality common to us all, but perceived from a unique perspective.
What the poet says has never been said before, but, once he
has said it, his readers recognize its validity for themselves
- W. H. Auden ...........Poetry is just the evidence of life.
If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash - Leonard
Cohen .........There is a pleasure in poetic pains which only
poets know - William Cowper .........Genuine poetry can communicate
before it is understood -T. S. Eliot ..........Poetry heals
the wounds inflicted by reason - Novalis...........He who draws
noble delights from sentiments of poetry is a true poet, though
he has never written a line in all his life - George Sand .........A
poem is never finished, only abandoned - Paul Valery ........A
poet is a bird of unearthly excellence, who escapes from his
celestial realm arrives in this world warbling. If we do not
cherish him, he spreads his wings and flies back into his homeland
- Kahlil Gibran.............Poetry should strike the reader
as a wording of his own highest thoughts, and appear almost
a remembrance - John Keats..........To be a poet is a condition,
not a profession - Robert Frost........A poem is true if it
hangs together. Information points to something else. A poem
points to nothing but itself - E. M. Forster.........Publishing
a volume of verse is like dropping a rose petal down the Grand
Canyon and waiting for the echo - Don Marquis...........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 ..........You can tear a poem apart to
see what makes it tick. You're back with the mystery of having
been moved by words. The best craftsmanship always leaves holes
and gaps so that something that is not in the poem can creep,
crawl, flash or thunder in - Dylan Thomas .........Poetry is
boned with ideas, nerved and blooded with emotions, all held
together by the delicate, tough skin of words - Paul Engle.........
There is not a joy the world can give like that it takes away!

nostalgie du pain de ma mere,
Du café de ma mere,
Des caresses de ma mere…
Et l'enfance grandit en moi,
Jour après jour,
Et je chéris ma vie, car
Si je mourais,
J'aurais honte des larmes de ma mere!
Fais de moi, si je rentre un jour,
Une ombrelle pour tes paupières.
Recouvre mes os de cette herbe
Baptisée sous tes talons innocents.
Avec une mèche de tes cheveux,
Un fil qui pend à l'ourlet de ta robe…
Et je serai, peut-être, un dieu,
Peut-être un dieu,
Si j'effleurais ton Coeur!
Si je rentre, enfouis-moi!
Bûche, dans ton âtre.
Corde à linge, sur le toit de ta maison.
Je ne tiens pas debout
Sans ta prière du jour.
J'ai vieilli. Ramène les étoiles de l'enfance
Et je partagerai avec les petits des oiseaux,
Le chemin du retour…
Au nid de ton attente!
