"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....
