					Definition of Poetry (Russell, 2005, pp. 176-177)

      Poetry is the most emotionally charged means of written expression
      and it consists of words arranged in patterns of sound and
      imagery to spark an emotional, and intellectual, response from
      us.

      Poetry is the language of the imagination, of feelings, of emotional
      self-expression, of high art.

      Prose explains, but poetry sings.

      The language in poetry is musical, precise, memorable, and
      magical.
