What is a poet? (Quote)

?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????When you read this quote, what comes to your mind?  Do you agree with Soren?

“What is a poet? An unhappy person who conceals profound anguish in his heart but whose lips are so formed that as sighs and cries pass over them they sound like beautiful music.” -Soren Kierkegaard

  1. It’s a great quote and I think many poets conform to that description, but not all – although maybe their anguish is so profoundly concealed that maybe they themselves don’t know it!
