Wordsworth defined poetry as “the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings.” Emily Dickinson said, “If I read a book and it makes my body so cold no fire ever can warm me, I know that is poetry.” And Dylan Thomas defined poetry this way: “Poetry is what makes me laugh or cry or yawn ... what makes me want to do this or that or nothing.” We read, write and perform poetry—and enjoy it all together; indeed, our classes are filled with delight. Come and enjoy. Share poetry. Experience!
