Everybody has a favorite poem. Poetry is one of those artforms that can express intense feeling and emotions. It can be like an inspirational painting.
Frost, Dickinson, Whitman, Eliot, Kipling, Emerson – great poets, one and all. My favorite poem was written by a fellow named Rufus Jones. It brings tears to my eyes when I recite it. It goes like this:
It was a cold and wintry night
A man stood in the street
His aged eyes were full of tears
His boots were full of feet.
Sort gets you right here, doesn’t it?
