Remember the days when we used to sit and read out poetry from our English textbooks? The ability to find out the rhyming pattern was an achievement in itself! We diligently scribbled the meaning of sentences in textbooks, trying to figure out what the poet really meant.
The essence of poetry was explained to us in metaphors and similies and the beauty of the words made us smile. We might not have time to go through poems in a book anymore but poetry remains to be just as special.
