Why is Poetry So Important ?
Tonight's show is talking to an accomplished poet, and author, Ms. Lauren Bacall Harris.
I fortunate enough to grab her for a short show, in order to probe her fabulous mind.
If you are a fan of the english language arranged in such a way to warp your brain, then make sure to make a pot of tea, and listen in to my show. I will ak her what gives her. Peace of Mind !
Poetry is vital language. 
Poetry relies on the writer's feelings, history and perceptions, so every person has the background needed to write poems.
Because poetry draws on the senses and the senses give deep access to memories and feelings, poetry writing is relevant and interesting.
Poetry is also ancient. The most primitive peoples have used it, and the most civilized have cultivated it. 
In all ages and in all countries, poetry has been written, and eagerly read or listened to by all kinds, and conditions of people. 
Be them statesmen, lawyers, farmers, doctors, scientists, clergymen, philosophers, soldiers, kings and queens, because poetry has been regarded as important, not simply for pleasure, but as something central to each individual's existence.
 Poetry like music has a unique value, and something which makes us feel better off for having read or listened to, for most humans lack the confidence, or ability to communicate in word, their real feelings to their fellow man.
God Bless poets and song writers.
Heck if chimps had a thumb, we would have at least five in Congress. Hello !
