A poet sifts...

...within his thought pattern, giving attention to subtle intimations of sound and rhythm which are somewhere far behind the tumble of words with which his mind is filled. In this way, he creates a phrase that carries with it a new force, and the reader, in turn, can perceive his own feelings being intensified as their energy is transformed by the impressions he receives from the poet.

"The Secret Dimension" an essay by Peter Brook, from the book GURDJIEFF (Needleman & Baker, 1998)
