Literature plays a key role in providing us with valuable information and insight into the changes and development in the society. Poetry is the mouthpiece of literature and acts as modifier. It gives an unending (everlasting) expression to inexpressible words otherwise our words are like corpses. It has got a beautiful art of resurrection. Every word which casts a spell bounds to some eternal attraction of superpower, changes myself into selflessness, mine to our. Poetry is altogether a stream of consciousness flowing from every divine mind which turns our illusions, imaginations and dreams into reality. It is music of soul which is always echoing and a bitter confrontation to our reality of existence. Poetry is all hidden in eternity and eternity best describes poetry. It gives wings to our soul to take-off from earthly to some divine existence and poet is a person who had quenched his thirst from potion of supernatural divinity. Dew drops on flower petals and each petal dancing in cadence of breeze is enough to create poetry in atmosphere and make it specular. Pain, joy and anger all emotions give rise to fountain of poetry. Emotions of human are bigger source of poetry. Poetry is secret to hold the magnificence of universe in itself, it beholds our being and we behold it. Escaping into the world of thoughts is an easy way to forget the present pains of life.

To Keats, beauty lies in truth and something true is beautiful. He loves nature and his touch transforms all into beauty.
