Poetry surprises us with the energies in wild things, including our dreams and passions; it elicits from deep within us our appetite for play, adventure, love and invention, and our capacity to be at home in the ever-changing world as it really is.

— John Steffler, Canada's Poet Laureate (2006-2008)
