It’s said that poetry, a literary art, can evoke great emotion. It has the power to encourage and enlighten. To draw one into another’s plight or perhaps discover a shared experience, providing a deeper touch of humanity. The Psalms is one of the greatest collections of literary art—poetry, songs, and prayer—all an expression extending from the condition of
the heart. Oft times directed toward the One who created the heart and loves it so unconditionally. Poetry is a gift of the Divine.
“Beautiful words stir my heart. I will recite a lovely poem about the king, for my tongue is like the pen of a skillful poet.” (Psalm 45:1, NLT)
