“…a superb, powerful, and true form of experience.”

Tom Sigafoos

Irish poet Eavan Boland says, “I don’t think poetry is a particularly good form of expression. Photograpeavan-bolandhs are more accurate. Theatre is more eloquent. But poetry is a superb, powerful and true form of experience. I don’t write a poem to express an experience. I write it to experience the experience. And the unforgettable poem I read, the one I remember, is the one that manages to convey the experience to me, which someone else once had — maybe hundreds of years ago — and, by a poise of music and language, convey it almost intact.”
