Poetry Friday

The Sixth Night: Waking

That first green night of their dreaming, asleep beneath the Tree,
God said, "Let meanings move," and there was poetry.

Awww, that was just lovely. "Let meanings move" indeed. I love the vision of poetry being born. :)

Isn't the idea that meaning MOVES very definitely at the heart of poetry? Yet so many people try to pin meaning down! Lovely quotation, thanks for sharing it.
