the thing
scrutinised, while
reticent on feelings,
allows minds responding to thing,
to feel

<>

<<Note>>
In the 11th century, Wei T'ai, a Chinese Philosopher told us how a poem should focus on 'the thing' to better to convey and evoke feelings in the reader.

Be precise, he said, about the thing, but reticent about the feeling.

When the mind of the reader connects, and responds with the thing described, the feeling is triggered and wells up. This, he says, is how a poem deeply enters us.
