While writing and editing poems for my new chapbook, as well as looking for inspiration, I encountered this poetic wisdom from William Wordsworth.

His words resonated with me, due to the focus on our license as poets to connect with emotion and feelings and tranquil environments.

“Poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquillity.”
~ William Wordsworth.
