Poetry Is...

Poetry is the chinking of a couple of unexpected coins in the shabby pocket of life.

Poetry is a young deity who used to shake dice with Kit Marlowe to see who should pay for the next round.

Poetry is a rather giddy young blighter Rudyard Kipling used to know.

i could tell you what
poetry is but
why should i stir up
feeling yours for
vers d'archibald

-- archy

Poetry is a cast shoe from one of Apollo's stallions. Societies and organizations pick it up and are just as likely to nail it onto a cow as onto a horse.

[Don Marquis]

Odd that something made wholly of words can't be defined by any of them.
