Poets on Poetry: JANE YOLEN

In celebration of National Poetry Month, I will be sharing in each post during April a favorite quote from a favorite poet on poetry. Enjoy!

"A great poet can make poetry out of a simple walk with a dog, a morning weeding the garden, a startling encounter with a snake, or a sister-in-law living "a hedge away" as Dickinson did. Or write good poetry using that too-often-used muse of bad poets as well as good - love. Shakespeare leaned on that one over and over and over again." - Jane Yolen
