Introduction

POETRY

Do you like poetry?  Before you answer, think of the words of your favorite song, the words you remember from books you have read and enjoyed, a famous quote from a famous person you admire, the smell of a special meal, or a special place you like to visit.  Are these things poetry?  Yes!!  Well they can be!
