Happy World Poetry Day Quotes, Wishes, Messages and Images

Poetry is the born from the heart and also is like a sweet medicine for the heart. It is art and it is beautiful. It can heal the one whose pen is creating these beautiful pieces of writing, and it can heal the heart of the one listening or reading the poetry. And to celebrate this amazing form of art, we have brought these amazing and beautiful Poetry Quotes and Sayings and World Poetry Day Slogans, Wishes, and Quotes from around the world.

World poetry day is celebrated on 21 March every year since 1999 as recognized and designated by UNESCO with the aim of spreading the different beautiful languages across the world through poetry. And what is the better way to know a language than through knowing the poetry in that language. Poetries have moods. They can motivate you or inspire you, they can make you laugh or they can make you cry. That is why I think poets are Mozart. They can do with their words what magicians do with their wands and comedians do with their acts. Let’s all not forget this heritage of ours and let’s keep this art alive.

And to cherish this magic of poetry we have brought this magical Poetry Quotes and Sayings Collection and World Poetry Day Wishes and Slogans, read on and let the poet in you unleash:
