Poetry is not the language of objective explanation but the language of imagination. It makes an image of reality in such a way as to invite our participation in it. We do not have more information after we read a poem; we have more experience. It is not "an examination of what happens but an immersion in what happens."
Eugene Peterson. REVERSED THUNDER.
