“Poetry Is What Is Lost In Translation…”

Hello lovely ones! How are you all doing? Today is my poetry day. I couldn’t make a post but I find the quotes on poetry below powerful. Some are funny😁. Hope you enjoy them. 🤗


Poetry is what is lost in translation. It is also what is lost in interpretation.” Robert Frost

“If poetry comes not as naturally as the leaves to a tree it had better not come at all.” – John Keats

“You will never be alone with a poet in your pocket.” – John Adams

Immature poets imitate; mature poets steal. – T. S. Eliot

Back in 2013, my love for teaching young learners propelled me into picking teaching as a career. I taught English, Maths and Science in the United Arab Emirates where I lived for ten years. Right now, I live in Coal City, a beautiful hilly area of my country Nigeria.

  1. “Poetry is the new era of writing; as you can use four stanzas comprising a poem
    that convey what it take a book to manifest,
    and with the materialization of the internet and google
    readers become bore with long drawn out
    book endings conveyed in poetry referred to as shortcut
    to enjoyment in reading!” _-
