My favorite poems, lyrics, literature that uses aesthetic and rhythmic qualities of language, as well as short prose and koans, etc.

Poetry is a form of literature that uses aesthetic and rhythmic qualities of language. This form of art is thousands years old, and originated in Africa.

To me it is the music of speech, I love rhythm and rhyme.

Koan is a puzzling or paradoxical statement to be meditated upon, anecdote, question, or verbal exchanges.
