Poetry is not the thing said but a way of saying it. 
The intellect is not the fount of poetry, 
may hinder its production, 
and cannot even be trusted to recognise poetry when it is produced. 
Art is not, like science, a logic of references 
but a release from references and rendition of immediate experience: 
a presentation of forms, images, or ideas
in such a way that they will communicate,
not primarily a thought or even a feeling, 
but an impact.
