Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Readying your post brings one of my favorite plems to mind. It is by Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer and the title is "What is Poetry?"

¿Qué es poesía?


¿Qué es poesía? --dices mientras clavas
en mi pupila tu pupila azul.
¿Qué es poesía? ¿Y tú me lo preguntas?
Poesía... eres tú

Translation: What is poetry? --you say while your blue pupil fixes on my pupil.
What is poetry. . . it is you
