Art in its many forms are non as expressive as it is in the art of rhythmical composition, written or spoken, for exciting pleasure by beautiful, imaginative, or elevated thoughts; mostly known as poetry.
As young children we are taught poems of centuries ago as well as modern day lyrics and when we take the time to read it line by line and understand each word of expression we feel the emotion that the poet felt.
