“Perhaps only now are we discovering why poetry matters, and how much it means.”


“The ability to capture a people’s imagination is more powerful and durable than any wall. Because an essential humanity exists in every citizen, sounding the note of truth can cause it to resonate further, faster and wider than any propaganda. It can turn us back into men and women, save lives, stop wars. In this way, every creative act—even a poem about a tree—can be seen as a form of protest.”
