“Poetry is the art of creating imaginary gardens with real toads.”—Marianne Moore
This is a very good idiomatic expression. It has a very deep meaning.
I will have to look for the poems by Moore. I am very much interested.
At its core, poetry does involve a lot of imagination. And an active one at that!
I have to admit that this flew over my head. I don’t understand the analogy.
Poetry to me is the sicerest form of writing. Nothing quite compares to it.
Indeed poetry is an art. I agree with that 100%
This is the true definition of poetry. It’s actually poetic in itself.
I’d like to read a few of Marianne’s poetry. They must be phenomenal.
Creating imaginary gardens with real toads? Sounds like a conundrum to me.
Marianne Moore was such an intellectual. I admire all his quotes.
Poetry speaks to our deepest soul. I agree with the quote.
Quite an insightful take on poetry. I like it.
Definitely, that’s what poetry is all about. Making a creative write up that is full of sense.
I love poetry because it allows you to create an ideal world that doesn’t exist. You can be whatever you want.
Making imaginary things visible is the uniqueness of poetry. Great quote, thanks for sharing Man
Words from a table of a scholar. Literarily one wont get the full gist but looking deeply, it means alot. Thanks for sharing.
I am not aware that she is the author of the quote. I have read that quote many times now. I am sure that some people are trying to steal it because of the message it employs to us.
Ahahahaha! Nice! I love the creativity in Mariannne Moore’s mind as shown in this quote of hers.
I like poetry especially if it is put together by a good poet. some poems are intriguing, inspirational and motivating
Am a lover of poetry. This quote is a brilliant one.
Poetry is one way where you can have all your imaginations. Poetry is also an expression of feelings. The all kinds of love, sorrow and happiness. For todays generations, poetry is now a glimpse of the tradition of our history.
Poetry can always attract attention to anyone. Quite often someone uses the medium of poetry to express affection for their parents or friends.
i love poetry you can transverse through worlds with it
