On poetry (Lee)

Poetry is something greater than us. You see, the whole universe is a poem! It has no rational meaning. It has no reason for being. Yet it is. All of the laws, all of the universe's laws, are poetic laws. None of them are logical; all of them defy understanding. All of them are great. Everything we say about a great poem is true about the universe. A poem is a little universe.

Li-Young Lee
