"He Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven"
Had I the heaven's embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams.
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

Teachers' Toolkit
Poets in School
What better way to bring poetry to life in the classroom than having a live poet? Whilst we believe that poetry is served best by being a consistent part of a classroom diet, having a poet in the class can greatly raise enthusiasm and awareness of poetry, and celebrate the school's own achievements in the art; this can lead into a beneficial spiral of excitement feeding into achievement, and vice versa. Their visits can slot neatly into a school day, whether as part of the lessons or assemblies.
Poetry itself can reach across the spectrum of pupil needs; its tolerance toward forms of expression can allow those struggling with literacy to shine, while formal complexity can offer outlets to the gifted and talented

Arranged chronologically by author, the poems are preceded by commentaries about their specific virtues and place them in historical context. Taken together, they provide an overview of Bloom's own theories of writing. Sometimes exasperating in his smugness, Bloom rarely bores, and at his best he achieves a cogency worthy of the poets he so deeply admires.

The criteria used by the editors in making selections included, literary excellence, historical importance, and representative range.

20. Authors On The Web - Poet Roundtable With Children's Poets
poetry, to me, is more about capturing specific moments, whether or not it is narrated by a character or by the poet her/himself.
1. AOTW: Of the various forms of expression, why do you find poetry so appealing? What can you say in poetry that you can't say as well in prose? Robin Hirsch: I would be hard pressed to call myself a poet. I commit verse rather than poetry. However, I was trained in pretty rigorous schools in England, where the study of literature enables you to take it apart rather than put something creative together, i.e., you're more likely to become a critic than a writer.
So, it took me years to find a voice as a writer (there are always those demons in your head, saying "So-and-soGeorge Herbert, John Keats, Dylan Thomas - would (or wouldn't) have done such-and-such." Etc., etc. I never dreamed of finding a voice as a poet - my metier is memoir. But with the inspiration of my kids, I started to write verse, most of it playful and very light, but occasionally with an oblique approach to something not totally without meaning.
Poetry (other people's) has such resonance because it is at its best deeply thought, deeply felt, and brilliantly expressed. It can be short and lyric, or massive and epic. It can contain (as Whitman did) multitudes. It can distill the most complex nuances of one's inarticulate inner life in a way that takes psychologists years of study and practice to approach. Hamlet (I think) says, "Oh, I could be bounded in a nutshell / And feel myself a king of infinite space..." Exactly. He also says "were it not that I have bad dreams."  Exactly, exactly.
