The following is a  quote by Carl Sandburg, who was born 1/6/1878 and died  7/22/1967          : “Poetry is the opening and closing of a door, leaving those who look through to guess what is seen during a moment.” End of quote.

Now, I ask you– friends and bloggers–isn’t that a marvelous way to describe poetry?
