Marked by magic...

"I think the best poems 
are marked by magic; 
they grow through a kind of wizardry 
which even the greatest poets 
cannot completely understand, 
let alone explain.  
I'm not talking about 
the mere tricks of a magician here.  
This is real sorcery.  
There's an element of miracle involved." 

~ Robert Currie, 
in The Place My Words are Looking For

I agree with Currie -- the best poems are magical. When I read them, they often give me goosebumps and always touch my heart. They "put me under a spell" and stick with me long after I've read them....
