Using rhyme and rhythm and all the tricks that make words stick, a poem pins down an elusive sliver of experience and shows us its true importance. Or it makes a wise point with wit, like this quirky lesson in cheerfulness from Adrian Mitchell:
When I am sad and weary
When I think all hope is gone
When I walk along High Holborn
I think of you with nothing on.
