I like to imagine that sharing a birthday with William Shakespeare is the spiritual source of my affection for words, and in particular my weakness for the melodic beauty and profound simplicity of poetry.
Potteringpoet hopes to honour this bygone art form and share with you the insurmountable joy and emotion that a string of carefully crafted words can conjure.
In the words of the Master:
“The poet’s eye, in a fine frenzy rolling, doth glance from heaven to Earth, from Earth to heaven; and as imagination bodies forth the forms of things unknown, the poet’s pen turns them to shape, and gives to airy nothing a local habitation and a name; such tricks hath strong imagination.”
― William Shakespeare
