Hazel Music is to poetry what spring is to flowers

May 16, t 11:58pm

"Poetry without a sense of music loses half its impact. Music is to poetry what spring is to flowers, rythm is to dance and a beautiful woman is to the love of a romantic. It is impossible to think of one without thinking of the other. Cutting sentences into parts to make them look like verse is only as close to poetry as putting clothes on a mannequin is to being a beautful young woman.Never attempt to say in poetry what you can equally well say in prose, unless you can make others sing your words.
