Reading a poem is as easy as a pie!  

But interpreting the very deep meaning of a poem is a diligent effort. 

Although I do think that sorting out the metaphors and similes of a poem is a kind of creative indulgence.

It makes us forget what’s happening around and be fully immersed in the world of literature.  

Which is why I have listed some of the greatest lines from poets to raise our spirits to live life to the fullest, without being too much distressed of the current circumstances! 

“they speak whatever’s on their mind

they do whatever’s in their pants

the boys I mean are not refined

they shake the mountains when they dance.”

From “the boys I mean are not refined” by E. E. Cummings

“Love at the lips was touch

As sweet as I could bear

And once that seemed too much

I lived on air.”

From “To Earthward” by Robert Frost

Hope is the thing with feathers

That perches in the soul

And sings the tune without the words

And never stops at all

—From Hope Is The Thing With Feathers by Emily Dickinson

“Some say the world will end in fire,

Some say in ice.

From what I’ve tasted of desire,

I hold with those who favor fire. 

But if it had to perish twice

I think I know enough of hate

To say that for destruction ice

Is also great

And would suffice.”

—From Fire and Ice by Robert Frost

“I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead; 

I lift my eyes and all is born again.” 

From The Bell Jar Sylvia Plath

“My turn shall also come:

I sense the spreading of a wing.” 

― From Osip Mandelstam, The Selected Poems

“Some of you say, “Joy is greater than sorrow,” and others say, “Nay, sorrow is the greater.”

But I say unto you, they are inseparable.

Together they come, and when one sits alone with you at your board,

remember that the other is asleep upon your bed.” 

Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet

“Come away, O human child!

To the waters and the wild

With a faery, hand in hand,

For the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand.” 

―  From William Butler Yeats, The Collected Poems of W.B. Yeats

Just like moons and like suns,

With the certainty of tides,

Just like hopes springing high,

Still, I’ll rise.

From Still I Rise By Maya Angelou

It matters not how strait the gate,

How charged with punishments the scroll,

I am the master of my fate:

I am the captain of my soul.-  From Invictus By William Ernest Henley

When can their glory fade?

O the wild charge they made!

All the world wondered.

Honor the charge they made!

Honor the Light Brigade,

Noble six hundred! 

From The Charge Of The Light Brigade By Alfred Tennyson

If they answer not to thy call walk alone

If they are afraid and cower mutely facing the wall,

O thou unlucky one,

open thy mind and speak out alone.

From Ekla Chalo Re’ by Rabindranath Tagore
