Poetry is the journal of the sea animal living on land, wanting to fly in the air. Poetry is a search for syllables to shoot at the barriers of the unknown and the unknowable. Poetry is a phantom script telling how rainbows are made and why they go away. Poetry is an echo, asking a shadow to dance - Carl Sandburg..........Poetry should be great and unobtrusive, a thing which enters into one's soul, and does not startle it or amaze it with itself, but with its subject - John Keats .........Poetry is the breath and finer spirit of all knowledge - William Wordsworth ..........Poets utter great and wise things which they do not themselves understand - Plato .........No man was ever yet a great poet, without being at the same time a profound philosopher. For poetry is the blossom and the fragrance of all human knowledge, human thoughts, human passions, emotions, language - Samuel Taylor Coleridge .........One demands two things of a poem. Firstly, it must be a well-made verbal object that does honor to the language in which it is written. Secondly, it must say something significant about a reality common to us all, but perceived from a unique perspective. What the poet says has never been said before, but, once he has said it, his readers recognize its validity for themselves - W. H. Auden ...........Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash - Leonard Cohen .........There is a pleasure in poetic pains which only poets know - William Cowper .........Genuine poetry can communicate before it is understood -T. S. Eliot ..........Poetry heals the wounds inflicted by reason - Novalis...........He who draws noble delights from sentiments of poetry is a true poet, though he has never written a line in all his life - George Sand .........A poem is never finished, only abandoned - Paul Valery ........A poet is a bird of unearthly excellence, who escapes from his celestial realm arrives in this world warbling. If we do not cherish him, he spreads his wings and flies back into his homeland - Kahlil Gibran.............Poetry should strike the reader as a wording of his own highest thoughts, and appear almost a remembrance - John Keats..........To be a poet is a condition, not a profession - Robert Frost........A poem is true if it hangs together. Information points to something else. A poem points to nothing but itself - E. M. Forster.........Publishing a volume of verse is like dropping a rose petal down the Grand Canyon and waiting for the echo - Don Marquis...........Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it is not the expression of personality, but an escape from personality. But, of course, only those who have personality and emotions know what it means to want to escape from these things - T. S. Eliot ..........You can tear a poem apart to see what makes it tick. You're back with the mystery of having been moved by words. The best craftsmanship always leaves holes and gaps so that something that is not in the poem can creep, crawl, flash or thunder in - Dylan Thomas .........Poetry is boned with ideas, nerved and blooded with emotions, all held together by the delicate, tough skin of words - Paul Engle......... There is not a joy the world can give like that it takes away! Lord Byron

生命幻想曲

顧城 - 中国

把我的幻影和梦
放在狭长的贝壳里
柳枝编成的船篷
还旋绕着夏蝉的长鸣
拉紧桅绳
风吹起晨雾的帆
我开航了

没有目的
在蓝天中荡漾
让阳光的瀑布
洗黑我的皮肤

太阳是我的纤夫
它拉着我
用强光的绳索
一步步
走完十二小时的路途

我被风推着
向东向西
太阳消失在暮色里

黑夜来了
我驶进银河的港湾
几千个星星对我看着
我抛下了
新月---黄金的锚

天微明
海洋挤满阴云的冰山
碰击着
轰隆隆---雷鸣电闪
我到那里去呵
宇宙是这样的无边

用金黄的麦秸
织成摇篮
把我的灵感和心
放在里边
装好纽扣的车轮
让时间拖着
去问候世界

车轮滚过
百里香和野菊的草间
蟋蟀欢迎我
抖动着琴弦
我把希望溶进花香
黑夜象山谷
白昼象峰巅
睡吧!合上双眼
世界就与我无关

时间的马
累倒了
黄尾的太平鸟
在我的车中做窝
我仍然要徒步走遍世界--
沙漠、森林和偏僻的角落

太阳烘着地球
象烤一块面包
我行走着
赤着双脚
我把我的足迹
象图章印遍大地
世界也就溶进了
我的生命

我要唱
一支人类的歌曲
千百年后
在宇宙中共鸣
