Poetry is that portion of literature which expresses imagination and feelings most intensely. Poetry is a rhythmical creation of beauty in lyrics, which stirs our imagination. A poem can be an elevated expression, a vision or insight of majestic thoughts and feelings. A poet must communicate a personal revelation by using dream-like words so that they arouse the readers imagination. The power of words fused into poetry is often magical beyond definition or reason, like loveliness. It is an intuitive experience. Often, poems are written only for entertainment and amusement. But some poems have a way of being painted memorably into every heart, causing the population to unite, resulting in altering the history of the world. Voltaire, the French satirist and philosopher created a fight to survive-type of poetry that ignited the French Revolution. When the Monarch of France finally capitulated in 1799, Voltaires skeleton was retrieved from the grave and placed on the Kings throne. If one reader is moved by only one single verse of a poem, then the poets efforts were never in vain.
