“Poetry, to a poet, is the most rewarding work in the world.  A good poem is a contribution to reality.  The world is never the same once a good poem has been added to it.  A good poem helps to change the shape and significance of the universe, helps to extend everyone’s knowledge of himself and the world around him.”
— Dylan Thomas, “On Poetry,” from Quite Early One Morning
