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.

Why?
