"Ars Poetica"

By Prehistoric As Whole

I agree with "Ars Poetica" by Archibald MacLeish because poems should just "be" and straightforward. A poem should be simple as "An empty doorway" or as clear as "a maple leaf." A poem shouldn't be hard to explain or difficult to analyze because that will lose the interest of the reader. Furthermore, when a poem contains highly complicated words or meaning, people look too much into the poem and lose its true meaning. This makes poems worthless.
