Is Poetry Still Alive?

Is poetry still alive? Do people read poetry anymore, or has it faded out of the mainstream? If so, who reads poetry these days?

Some of the best quotations are from beautiful old poems that were true works of art. It’s a pity to see such an expressive, emotive art form lose popularity.

I still read anthologies of poems. I find them calming and soothing. I also find writing poetry quite therapeutic. Saying so much with so few words is one of life’s little joys.

Why do you think interest in poetry has declined so much over time? Is our modern life so full of social networking and technology that it has become devoid of rhyme and reason?
