Poetry expresses the idea; song regulates the sounds; dance enlivens the attitudes; these three have their principal in man's heart, and it is only the later that musical instrument lends their help. - Li Chi, Record of Rites

Poetry is a deal of joy and pain and wonder, with a dash of the dictionary. - Kahlil Gibran

Poetry presents the thing in order to convey the feeling. It should be precise about the thing and reticent about the feeling, for as soon as the mind responds and connects with the thing the feeling shows in the words.
