I agree...

...with what Amazon reviewer Martin H. Dickinson says about poetry (in his evaluation of Adam Zagajewski's book Eternal Enemies: Poems):

Powerful, memorable poetry: 1) evokes our emotions; 2) possesses physicality appealing to one or more of our senses of sight, touch, hearing, smell and taste; 3) stays grounded in the concrete, specific world even when bordering on the general and philosophic; 4) speaks directly to us in a distinctive, unique voice and 5) opens outward toward a timeless, universal horizon.
