The spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings, taking its origin from emotions recollected in tranquility. (Wordsworth)

Poetry is the language of the imagination and passions (Hazlitt)
Poetry, is a beautiful art in which the poet gives life to the lifeless things with great precision and care. Since ages poets have rendered a great service to this art by writing poetry on diverse subjects like love, wars, beauty, death ,friendship and what not. But to write a good poetry is a great art and is indispensable service to the society .A good poetry is always enchanting and is evergreen without any fear or favour. It blessing and pleasing, considered an agent of strong change as well as revolution .History is testimony to this fact that good poetry has always awakened society from deep slumber.
A good poetry is full of pleasure and excitement and catches the heart and soul of reader .It is a rich cultural heritage of any nation. Such kind of poetic creation is treasure for that very society as it defines their culture , religion, economy., ethical set up, faith , belief, history and political aspect .Thus a good poetry is reflection of that society for which it has been crafted like CHUCER for English nation, and Kalidas, Tulsidas and Alama Iqbal for east. Good poetry is life line of society as it highlights the crisis into which any society is plunged . The chief aim of a good poetry should not only be to raise questions and highlight the crisis but it must also try to provide solutions to the problems with which a society is grappling with, otherwise it is only agent of pointing out things without arriving to any agreement. It must highlight the evils plaguing the society but without splintering it into various segements.The approach of a good poet in writing a poetry should be moderate so that violence in any form is not incited .It must bridge the gaps between different sections of a society thus construct paths not to obstruct them. To achieve such excellence a poet must always consider he the member of a family and treat society as family itself. Society always accepts the work of poets and on parallel lines has always appreciated it without any doubt .Therefore it is imperative that the chief aim of a poet is to make efforts to bring positivity in social arena by crafting poetic work which has a positive impact on the lives of people living in society.
Good poetry, must be equally pleasing and in proper length with best choice of words having nice rhyme, lyric and intonation, in other words it must follow the basic rules of poetry such that it appears magnificent in utterance of words both in writing, speaking and listening. There must also be economy of words that is poetic work must be in equilibrium , because by composing poetry this way readers feel enjoyed while the message is absorbed in decent way without feeling bored or stressed . This has a long lasting impact on the brains of readers and such work is never neglected by common folk. Hence it can be stated that good poetry is pleases the reader and motivates him internally, unleashes his mental energy to digest the underlying theme rather objective of poets artistic creation. Besides, good poetry must have socially relevant, it must not philosophize the things that is beyond the normal range of humans and appears abstract and distant from lives of a common man. It must provide complicated things in simple manner or else it can be stated that a good poetry should work as panacea of all ills , it should have the capacity to bloom the flower of spirit in human brains and reduce the chaos and confusion which has chained the human mind .Good poetic work , must have the capacity to unfold the intellectual energy among readers so that it can be utilized for general good of masses , thus good poetry has the quality to stimulate the intellectual traits of a reader which in future could become fruitful for society.
Emotions are closely attached with actions of a normal person, so a good poetry should stimulate emotions in a positive manner such that they are not robbed for petty gains or utilized in wrong way like giving birth to social evils viz communal thinking, regionalism, sectarian conflicts, religious intolerance , caste conflicts etc. Good poetry also must have the ingredients of weaving social fabric closely without any gap , in other words a good poetry should sow the seeds of cooperation, brotherhood, and integrity .This will help in mitigating social crisis and end violence in any form, thus a poetry having such elements can play a vital role in developing a society where there is no place for such actions and thinking. So it can be clearly stated that a good poetry has the potential of uprooting social bigots and dogma which has posed a constant threat to unity and integration of a society. Good poetry must analyze the society in general and bring out positive and negative elements so that a society can progress by comparing itself with developed ones, otherwise a society without any self observation becomes complacent and therefore is considered a stagnant one which ultimately plunges into dark ages, here poetry can play a crucial role in comparing and contrasting a society with those which are advancing by leaps and bounds. A good poetry constantly motivates the readers to work for advancement of ones nation in every aspect whether science, economy or politics. Hence a good poetry becomes oxygen for society without which it cannot think of progress and advancement. (To Be Continued)
