A poem generated by its own laws may be unrealized
and bad in terms of so-called objective principles of taste,

- A. R. Ammons

I am grateful for - though I can't keep up with -
the flood of articles,
theses, and textbooks that mean to share insight concerning the nature of poetry.

If the greatest god is the stillness all the motions add up to,

If a poem is each time new, then it is necessarily an act of discovery,
a chance taken, a chance that may lead to fulfillment or disaster.

to the unknown, and returns us to our rational,
structured selves refreshed.

That's a wonderful change that's taken place,
and so most poetry today is published,
if not directly by the person, certainly by the enterprise of the poet himself,
working with his friends.

Even if you walk exactly the same route each time -
as with a sonnet -
the events along the route cannot be imagined to be
the same from day to day,
as the poet's health, sight, his anticipations,
moods, fears, thoughts cannot be the same.
- A. R. Ammons

I must stress here the point that I appreciate clarity,
order, meaning, structure, rationality:
they are necessary to whatever provisional stability we have,
and they can be the agents of gradual and successful change.
- A. R. Ammons

a poem is to go past telling,
to be recognised by burning.
- A. R. Ammons

while teaching everything you can and keeping free of it,
teach that poetry is a mode of discourse that differs from logical exposition.

to choose one's own way.
