quote- tragedy and poetry

Shawn L. Bird

“If the gods write tragedy in this world they write it as men write songs, to soothe the mind with remembered woe, and to make still further poetry possible.”

~Mark Van Doren

One of my former students posted this quote that she took out of a university text book.  It’s full of interesting thoughts to ponder, isn’t it?  Poetry comes from so many places, and it can make pain a lasting thing of beauty.
