Poem. From the old French poeme, from the Latin poema, from the Greek poema, a derivative of the verb poeim meaning "to make, to create." The word poem literally means "something created." Poet. From the Greek poetes, meaning "maker." Thus, the poet is the creator of the world of the poem. He or she has complete control of all the elements therein: anything can happen. It is through this power which the poet possesses as maker that each poem is rendered completely unique. Each poem, each created piece is the link between the unfettered and abstruse emotions of the poet and his or her conscious mind. Furthermore, once the poem is created and the emotions made more concrete, the words become to link between these emotions a rare connection between poet and reader, and through this connection the reader can experience events and emotions which may never have occurred in his or her life. This is the magic of poetry.
