What is a Poet

 
 What is a Poet? 

He is a man speaking to men: a man, it is true, endued with more lively sensibility, 

more enthusiasm and tenderness, who has a greater knowledge of human nature, 

and a more comprehensive soul, than are supposed to be common among mankind; 

a man pleased with his own passions and volitions, and who rejoices more than other men in the spirit of life that is in him; 

delighting to contemplate similar volitions and passions as manifested in the goings-on of the universe, 

and habitually impelled to create them where he does not find them.

~ William Wordsworth
