Poetry is what a man writes when he is thrilled by the beauty of his own thought. Some in music, others in diagrams or programs, drawings, schematics... In whatever form it is a worship of the glory of knowing and of feeling and of reaching upward to capture a ray from heaven's beauty. Then it can be seen that God's greatest gift to man is his intellect. And man's greatest gift to God -- and to himself -- is to use it.
