A poet is a person who thinks there is something special about a poet and about his loving one unattainable woman.You'll usually find he takes the physical out on whores. I am defining a romantic poetand there is no other kind. An unromantic poet is a self-contradiction.
It is sometimes said that scientists are unromantic, that their passion to figure out robs the world of beauty and mystery. But is it not stirring to understand how the world actually works that white light is made of colors, that color is the way we perceive the wavelengths of light, that transparent air reflects light, that in so doing it discriminates among the waves, and that the sky is blue for the same reason that the sunset is red? It does no harm to the romance of the sunset to know a little bit about it.carl sagan
An unromantic poem I mean to make, of one who only lives for duty's sake.henrik ibsen
