what do you see in a poem

“We peer into the new poem with the old hope:that we might find there a few words to illumine more widely our passage through the dark woods and brightly lit cities of the fleeting, time-bound world. And the art of poetry reigns daughter of Remembrance-of our wish to feel joined to some fabric that both gives meaning to and is made meaningful by the part of it we are.”-Jane Hirshfield, Nine Gates, Entering the Mind of Poetry
