F is for Fragment

American Imagist poet Amy Lowell (1874-1925), who won the Pulitzer Price posthumously in 1926, assembled these creative phrasing to describe her own perception of poetry.


Fragment, by Amy Lowell

What is poetry? Is it a mosaic
Of colored stones which curiously are wrought
Into a pattern? Rather glass that's taught
By patient labor any hue to take
And glowing with a sumptuous splendor, make
Beauty a thing of awe; where sunbeams caught,
Transmuted fall in sheaves of rainbows fraught
With storied meaning for religion's sake.

  1. It's an interesting take on poetry, though when that description abandons its approach and twists lines around just to serve the rhyme, it becomes harder to accept that the poet really meant it.

  3. 'A mosaic'

    very cool. I love the image that evokes.

  4. What an artistic way to tell what is poetry by Amy, thanks for this post.
    Do check out my F at GAC a-z.

  5. Poetry is such a beautiful art form. Makes me feel useless. I appreciate poetry, but can't write it. :)

  6. I like that picture that goes with the poem for today. Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
