It would be great to hear from UM members as to why you like poetry and what does it teach you?
For me, poetry adds a novel way to look at life in ways, that I would have never even thought of. It also helps to impart a vocabulary to be able to describe an ocean, or a sunset so I can share it with another etc etc..
IMO, It's a really hard question! Because how does one inspire teenage boys to consider reading poems on occasion, let alone write them!
