Being a Poet

New to the Poems by Others page is “How to Be a Poet” by the inimitable Wendell Berry, who offers these lines:
 
        Of the little words that come
        out of the silence, like prayers
        prayed back to the one who prays,
        make a poem that does not disturb
        the silence from which it came.
