Be it romance or sorrow, poems are the best medium to portray your emotions. As many would agree, poems are at once fiercely private and astonishingly public. They tell you that your sorrows are not unique, and neither the experience that you are going through. 

The rhythm of the tongue brings wordless music into the air; it is in poetry that the human essence is refined to such ritualistic purity. It's in the steady beats, the sonorous rise-and-fall of speech; for a moment it appears as if all the mysteries of the world have unlocked themselves to our private view.

In order to celebrate these works, every year World Poetry Day is celebrated on March 21. The day was adopted in 1999 during UNESCO’s 30th session held in Paris. Apart from celebrating the diversity, one of the main objectives of the day is to offer endangered languages an opportunity to be heard and read within communities.

To mark this special day, people are sharing their tweet-poetry and all we can say is Irshaad.  From Shakespeare to William Blake, netizens are quoting their favourite poets. 

Let’s have a look at the tweets:
