What makes a good poetry? What is a good poetry
Poetry always comes from the heart spontaneously.
Poetry cannot be made, poet is born.
Good poetry always conveys the naked truth and beauty of human mind
and environment .
According to the critic Coleridge, prose is “words in their best order,” while poetry is “the best words in their best order.
A good poem surprises your senses, shakes you awake, stirs your emotions, and startles your imagination. Each poem is an act of discovery. Poetry helps us widen our vision and our hearts.
Joan Bransfield Graham. Splish Splash. Houghton Mifflin, 1994. Flicker Flash. Houghton Mifflin, 1999.
A good poem awakens the senses, allowing me to see, touch, and experience something in a powerful way.
A good poem makes the ordinary and familiar seem extraordinary.
Michele Coppola, editor, Dutton Books.
A good poem must be well written with a concise and accurate use of language.
A good poem should be able to lift the reader out of the ordinary and give glimpses of a more illumining reality. Good poetry is not an argument-it has no specific rules but convinces the
Reader through his use of words with emotional understanding of the word order or position.
The great poet write in such a way as if it is the best word order to express the beauty.
A good poem is a blind date with enchantment.
Above all, no matter what its subject matter,
it must possess perfect verbs and no superfluous
Words. It must be an antidote to indifference.
The acid test is that you want to read it time and
Time again, and not only to yourself. A good poem
Begs to be shared with others.
J.Patrick Lewis. Freedom Like Sunlight: Praise songs for Black Americans.
When I think of a good poem:
Many things come to mind but a few specifically: A good poem makes you feel like you’ve been there before, or want to go. A good poem takes you to the city, to the sea, to the heart of any and all matters; you see it, taste it, belong to it. A good poem is a menagerie of craft; a spinning of sound, word choice, alliteration, rhythm and often rhyme. A good poem is the arrangement of enchantment, or as J. Patrick Lewis says, a blind date with enchantment.
Rebecca Kai Dotlich. Lemonade Sun and Other Summer Poems.
A good poem is like medicine. It can be made up of almost anything, but only when its ingredients are put together in the right proportions–neither too much nor too little—can it affect your life.
Taking that medicine analogy even further, just a little dose of good poetry is sometimes all you need to be helped and even healed.
This, of course, ties into some very old ideas. My Abenaki ancestors said that words have power, that a song can be medicine, can restore balance, and can bring back joy after sorrow. Words of power make things happen. Good poems touch that sort of power.
Joseph Bruchac. No Borders.
This is age of information; take the advantage of endless rich resources around you by immersing yourself in poems.
N the same way that you can’t be a good writer if you’re not a wide reader, you can’t be your best as a poet if you don’t expose yourself to the variety of poems and creative writing around you
on web sites.
Finally someone rightly says that poetry is a cornerstone of civilization .or
in my words poetry is emotional foundation of civilization.
So write poetry regularly whatever comes in your mind, join poetry club,
Make poetry community for yourself and for other s also.
Quotes of great poet Rabindranath thakur
A mind all logic is like a knife all blade. It makes the hand bleed that uses it.
Age considers; youth ventures.
Beauty is truth's smile when she beholds her own face in a perfect mirror.
Bigotry tries to keep truth safe in its hand with a grip that kills it.
By plucking her petals, you do not gather the beauty of the flower.

Death is not extinguishing the light; it is only putting out the lamp because the dawn has come.
Depth of friendship does not depend on length of acquaintance.
Do not say, 'It is morning,' and dismiss it with a name of yesterday. See it for the first time as a newborn child that has no name.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Emancipation from the bondage of the soil is no freedom for the tree.
Every child comes with the message that God is not yet discouraged of man.
Every difficulty slurred over will be a ghost to disturb your repose later on.
Everything comes to us that belongs to us if we create the capacity to receive it.
Facts are many, but the truth is one.
Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark.
From the solemn gloom of the temple children run out to sit in the dust, God watches them play and forgets the priest.
Gray hairs are signs of wisdom if you hold your tongue, speak and they are but hairs, as in the young.
He who is too busy doing good finds no time to be good.
I have become my own version of an optimist. If I can't make it through one door, I'll go through another door - or I'll make a door. Something terrific will come no matter how dark the present.
