What does poetry mean to you?

It’s an art, a nice reflection in the middle of the stress of this day-to-day living.

Why do you like this poet/poem? 

My mother used to recite it to me when I was a child, and I always liked the way it sounded. Later, when I realized the meaning of these powerful sentences, I liked it even more.
