Good poetry – great poetry – (sonnet, verse, song lyrics) will lodge itself in the depths of one’s soul and remain there, forever shining like diamonds on silk.  Anyone who appreciates the art of the written word appreciates/ loves/ is transformed by good poetry.

So why is it almost impossible for modern poets to get their work published?
Because hardly anyone reads it now, and almost no one buys it.
