The hectic pace that defines the lives of most of us may be doing more than merely serving as a source of stress and irritation. It may be robbing us of encounters with beauty, wonder, and glory that can thrill and transform us, enrich our lives, and equip us to live more fully. Such opportunities are present at almost every moment; most of us are just too hurried to notice.

Poetry, she suggests, can help us to overcome this problem and teach us to slow down and appreciate the simple things of life more fully.
