A Poet Reflects

"Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you—like music to the musician or Marxism to the Communist—or else it is nothing, an empty, formalized bore, around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations."
—F. Scott Fitzgerald, letter to daughter, August 3, 1940.
