QUOTE | FROM Ralph Waldo Emerson




It is not metres, but a metre-making argument that makes a poem,–a thought so passionate and alive that like the spirit of a plant or an animal it has an architecture of its own, and adorns nature with a new thing. The thought and the form are equal in the order of time, but in the order of genesis the thought is prior to the form.
