Quote of the Week #3

A poem is never finished, only abandoned.
Paul Valery (1871 – 1945)

This is an interesting quote to me. What it says to me is: even after a poet publishes a poem it is never done because it will say something different for each person that reads it. So the poem is abandoned to the world of the reader, but it is never finished.
